1st Lt. Cdr. Dan Lewindowski of the Avengers Camp presented a wonderful program about the replica weapons he owns and uses for competition with
the North-South Skirmish Association. One dates back to 1842. All are representative of the Civil War era. Dan even casts his own bullets!

to take summer vacations.
