LOL. I got into awful trouble on a French warship visiting London. Some of the Matelots were wearing the semi - cap with the "pompom" on top as part of a historic display. I shouldn't have said "pompom" !I believe they call that a hackle, but pompom is also correct.
Trust me---long after you are gone, your grandson will cherish these photos....View attachment 211251
I went up to Gettysburg to march in the annual Remembrance Day Parade celebrating Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. My 15 yr old grandson, CJ Foran, made this his first ever event and marched with us. The unit I was with, the 39th NY Infantry, only had four members today so we fell in with the 14th Brooklyn. Here are some pictures my daughter took of the parade. If anyone else was there and would like to share their photos in this thread, by all means feel free. First two are of me and CJ before the start of the parade. The musket I'm carrying is an original 61 Springfield.
