Bugle Calls From

the Civil War

November Meeting of the Litchfield GAR Civil War Roundtable

Thursday, November 12th at 1:30pm

Litchfield Opera House

Advance RSVP Required

William Crowder will showcase music from a bygone era with Bugle Calls from the Civil War. Crowder will explain, and demonstrate, how the infantry, artillery and calvery units used unqiue Bugle calls to speak to one another from the battlefield. He will also have several bugles from the era on display, and encourages guests to talk a closer look.

William Crowder has been a Civil War reenactor since 2001, specifizing in all things "Bugle." He initially picked up the instrument as a hobby, but after learning about its importance during the Civil War, began to intensely study the calls and their meanings. Crowder currently volunteers as the bugler for the 2nd Minnesota Light Artillery based in Red Wing, Minnesota.
