William Boone Days are celebrated in Boonsboro



The annual William Boone Days in Boonsboro featured historical demonstrations from time periods ranging from the 15th century to World War II.

The public watched re-enactors participate in staged events from the War of the Roses, French and Indian War, Revolutionary War, Civil War, Old West, Mexican War, World War I and World War II.

People learned about medical techniques from the Civil War, saw broad-ax demonstrations and the rebuilding of an 1805 log cabin.

Three blacksmiths were on hand and explained how the trade changed over three centuries. Civil War businessmen peddled their wares.

Musicians Rob Caruthers and Paul Mackerel and the Rohrersville Community Band performed Saturday. The Brighter Side gospel singers performed Sunday.

The event also offered children's activities including pony rides, a petting zoo and a Civil-War period puppet show.
