After a productive quarterly meeting on July 27th, Member, Jim Smith, relayed to us his adventure of recreating the 200-mile march from Pittsburgh to Gettysburg by Civil War drummer Peter Guibert in 1913.

I surprised this morning when opening my August issue of Percussion News to find an article covering Jim’s trek.

Below is a copy of the article as seen in the newsletter. You may click on the article to bring you to the digital edition which has more photos of the event as well as some video coverage.
