The Battle of Frog Town

Posted by Thunder Pig on July 21, 2008

Cross-posted on WNC Citizens Blog:

This is “The Battle of Frog Town” mock battle by members of the 25th NC Infantry Civil War re-enactors as part of the 5th Annual Franklin Folk Festival in Franklin, NC this past Saturday, the 19th of July.

It was tremendous fun.

Festival Videos

Posted by Thunder Pig on June 14, 2008


I’ll be posting this year’s A Taste of Scotland Videos on WNC Citizens Blog, and have posted the first one already. I’ll be posting more throughout the day tomorrow.

This year, I pretty much stayed near the Gazebo Stage so I could catch most of the music and dance performances.
