Puppet Show and Gatling Gun
Posted on: 2006-07-06

"How many times have I told them, it's Gatling Gun first!"

A friend from Michigan sent me an email about an upcoming event. Here's what it said at the bottom:

ON GOING DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE SPECIAL IMPRESSIONS AREA

SARAH EDMONDS 2nd MICH. NURSE & SPY
SENATOR HOWARD
GATLING GUN
1st MICHIGAN CAVALRY
VINTAGE BASEBALL, COOKING
5TH MICHIGAN REGIMENTAL BAND
CHILDREN’S GAMES/ PUPPET SHOW
SUN. SPECIAL APPEARANCE BY PRES. ABE LINCOLN

It's actually for 'Civil War Days' at Detroit's newly restored Fort Wayne, but it has a vague McSweeney's feel to it, doesn't it?

Speaking of McSweeney's and the Civil War, check out their classic: A Reenactment of the Reenactment of the Battle of Turkinsville.
