Smithsburg Scouts experience life, Civil War-style

September 28, 2007

Pack 14, of Smithsburg, visited the Civil War Living History Encampment at Renfrew Park in Waynesboro, Pa., on Aug. 11.

Dr. Roger Hershey told the Cub Scouts and their leaders how the military police protected the citizens of an area during the Civil War. Brett Tower explained how a doctor cared for the wounded and injured during a battle.

The Scouts visited the Union and Confederate camps and talked with the "soldiers" about the ways of preparing food, caring for weapons and packing for long hikes.

The boys and leaders watched a scrimmage and hiked the Renfrew Trail to earn a patch.

Pack 14 is sponsored by the Smithsburg Lions Club.
