It is 1861 in rural Pennsylvania. News of the Federal defeat at Bull Run has reached Bedford County and a newly formed unit is passing through the county on a recruiting. Company F of the 8th Pennsylvania Reserves is looking for patriotic young men to fill it's ranks and defend the Union. While the civilians conduct their daily lives during the military visit, they decide to send the soldiers off with a patriotic fair. Games, speeches, food and other activities will fill the village.
