Chippokes State Park Living History 2006 : The 3rd Virginia Volunteer Infantry presented a living history demonstration at Chippokes Plantation State Park located in Surry, VA in August 2006.  The 3rd VA portrayed the Surry Light Artillery, Company I. Company I was formed early in the war, shortly after the Confederate victory at 1st Manassas, thus spirits were high.  Company I was made up mostly of local farm boys from the area and the 3rd VA demo brought to life the sometimes humorous attempts at training these farm boys in the art of soldiering during this first encampment of this newly formed unit.  Not having an artilley piece, the 3rd VA constructed a wooden canon to drill on and it was an interesting event for the 3rd as we tried our hand at artillery.  During the demo, various ladies in era attire visited camp with goodies and well wishes for the local boys who were headed off to war.

3rd Arkansas - Memorial Day Parade 2006 : The residents of Charlestown, Rhode Island, once again welcomed Company A, 3rd Arkansas during their annual Memorial Day Parade. 

Whereas last year we were treated to a few scattered showers to cool things off, this year we basically roasted. "We got to toughen up for First Manassas," Captain Bill Gosselin explained. "End of July - central Virginia - should be a hot one."
