Event Description:
The Eighth Regiment Band is coming to Ellijay for a patriotic concert the week of July Fourth. 'The 8th' is the modern counterpart of the Band of the Eighth Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, whose men gallantly served their homeland. Members of the band want all to understand that they are not simply a 'Civil War Band' or a 'Confederate Band'. They realized that they could not portray the true history of those times, nor could they achieve public trust in their historical accuracy by speaking to only one side. The band has no political ties, regularly dons both uniforms, and has been described as "A Living Museum of 19th Century Emotions". The band plays 30 original horns and an original bass drum that was made in 1840 in Massachusetts.
