The Breakout at Petersburg, April 2015
The Hemlocks were invited to partipate in the commemoration of the Breakout at Petersburg on April 2, 1865 at Pamplin Park. At the same time they dedicated a marker honoring the six Vermonters who received the Medal of Honor for their contributions to this action.
The Hemlocks, portraying the 5th VT Vols, layed on their arms throughout the night At 4:40AM, 150 years to the hour and on the spot that the 5th VT led the charge to break through, the Hemlocks raised up and charged the works. Hemlocks member and the great grandson of Color Sgt Jackson Sargent of the 5th, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on April 2, was in the ranks and carrying the regimental colors. In the late morning, the Hemlocks recreated the assault for the public and the media present.
The following following pictures are of the late morning recreation.
