The Hemlocks take enormous pride in their commitment to historical accuracy, be it in the uniform, camp life or on the field of battle. As with any organization, maintaining quality and high standards requires a serious commitment by each and every one of the individual members. In our case, this is not only a financial commitment but a spiritual one as well! Being "good enough" is not in the Hemlock vocabulary. We continue to strive for historical accuracy. As new information about our brethren from 150 years ago becomes available, we adapt. Being a Hemlock means adopting an 1862 mind set. We do the things we do and act the way we act because we ARE men of the Old Brigade and the Gray Horse Battery!! We do not utilize modern tools or methods. We use what they used, eat what they ate and live as they lived. Only by developing this mind set and applying it can we truly experience what it must have been like to serve for three years in Company A or the 1st Vermont Battery. To do less would be a grave injustice to those men who went south in the defense of the Union, never to return. Join with us in portraying and honoring those brave boys from Vermont with the green in their caps. Become a Hemlock in flesh and spirit!
