50 re-enactors registered for battle
FUNKSTOWN - Despite the ever-rising price of gasoline, re-enactors for next month's Battle of Funkstown are signing up at about the same pace as last year, said longtime organizer Ron Benedict.
"I've got about 50 registrations so far," he said at Monday night's town meeting.
The dates for the annual event are July 18 to 20 for what will be the 145th anniversary year of that battle, Benedict told the council.
The re-enactors camp in Funkstown Park during the three-day event. There will be a street battle, as well as activities in the park.
