The Ebony Doughboy’s were very busy the weekend of11/7/15. Two Elements of the Ebony Doughboys were attending two different events.
The Illinois contingent was manning the trenches as Red Hand soldiers in Newville, Pa. Our East Coast contingent was representing the state side soldiers of the 93rd Infantry Division in Dover Delaware’s Veterans Day Parade with Caesar Rodney’s JROTC. CRJROTC displayed outstanding military discipline and drilling skill.
The Fall event in Newville Pa is a WWI tactical combat reenactment. This event includes military vehicles, reenactors dressed in period WWI uniforms with weapons, participating in WWI trench warfare. This event is the premiere tactical event of the two that we participate in each year in Newville.
Both contingents of Ebony Doughboys portrayed their WWI counterparts with distinction while on the reenactment battlefield and on parade duty.
