"Has anyone besides me ever seen those pictures of the Union and Confederate
soldiers at their "Last Hurrah" encampment in 1938 being escorted by Boy
Scouts? Where could one learn more about this event?"
In the "Civil War" series by Ken Burns there is a piece of film in the last
episode showing soldiers at the Last Hurrah encampment. A scout is shown
with one or two soldiers saluting.
An archaeologist friend of mine says that there are several books about the
Last Hurrah. Don't know, though, if there are any references to Scouts.
