In 2012, I left to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh in western TN. The 8-day, 2,000 mile round trip included 2 days on the Shiloh Troop Train and a 3-day reenactment near the original battlefield. The 19-piece Frontier Brigade Band performing as the 1859 Marine Band was along on the train, playing at towns we stopped at along way. Here's a video of them playing at the reenactment site.

Little did I know that later that year, I'd be outfitted with the same uniform and would be falling in on the USS Constellation as a Marine Field Musician!
