War Encampment Memorializes Bristol’s Fallen


One hundred and fifty years after the beginning of the Civil War, Bristol intends to erect a monument along Memorial Drive honoring its 54 soldiers who died during four year struggle. To bring people back in time, a war encampment of Union and Confederate troops will line Memorial Boulevard from 8a – 3 pm Saturday. The public is invited to see a variety of other military displays as well. Bugle renditions and performances by the 94 Army Band will be played throughout the day.
