ACWSA at 2017 School Days in Milton, WI
Company K, 2nd Volunteer Infantry Associations School Day was held on May 19, 2017 in Milton, WI and the ACWSA hosted one of their 26 different stations. Stephen Sherry (15WI), Al Bortles (2WI), and Gary Van Kauwenbergh (2WI) manned a table covering Civil War Small Arms.
A record attendance of 2,000 students were scheduled to come this year, but many groups cancelled due to cold wet weather.
