dancing at Meadowlawn
During the Civil War reenactment weekend in Tunnel Hill, there is a Saturday night ball complete with era authentic music played by bandmembers wearing period clothing. There is no sound equipment used. The ladies and gents are dressed in their finery as they dance the Virginia Reel and the Tennessee Waltz. The event begins at 7:30 pm and goes on until everyone is too exhausted to dance another step. There's root beer, apple cider and sarsaparilla for drinking. Everyone will be up early the next morning getting ready for Sunday's outdoor church service and the battle to follow.
