Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums
This colorful group of mostly young men (there’s at least one young lady) make up the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums. They march down the main street in the colonial town daily, and they sounded pretty good as they paraded in front of Heather and I during our visit. Back in the 1700s, boys aged 10-18 were the typical fifers and drummers, and they served right alongside enlisted men in the Virginia State Garrison Regiment.
