New Market

I was rummaging through old photos on my hard drive today and ran across some photos of New Market day here at the Institute and at the Battlefield. Last year I was the commander of the firing party/honor guard for the event, which meant that myself along with seven other cadets performed a gun salute for the ten Cadets who died at the Battle of New Market on May 15, 1864. While I’ve marched in the annual parade, I had never been asked to participate in a ceremonial role before. It was a great honor and the riflemen did an outstanding job.
