Secret identities and bugle calls

The Hagerstown paper is covering Chambersburg's feting of Ed Bearss, and what do I see: an old acquaintance from the former Trenton State College's music faculty in full military regalia (see accompanying photo). I had no idea he was a re-enactor.

The evening included a demonstration of bugle calls by New Jersey musician George Rabbai. More than "Reveille" and "Taps," Rabbai noted that there were 48 infantry bugle calls, 39 for the artillery and 26 for the cavalry, taking up most of their activities throughout the day and in battle.

An evening of bugle calls? Sorry I missed it.
