Steve Ball will be back to perform. His program will narrate the creation of many of the popular tunes of the Civil War period and includes interesting tales about the people who wrote them.

After Steve Ball’s program, the Custer Memorial Association’s own General Custer [ aka Rick Williams ] will be talking of his exploits during the third year of the war to include the Gettysburg campaign.

Also on display in the museum will be detailed working models of Civil War artillery pieces handcrafted by Mr. Ron Kimble of Dover, Oh. His display will include explanations on the organization and use of artillery during the war.
