Drummer Boy

Grave of the Drummer 

Boy.One of the many heart rendering stories in the frontier museum is the little drummer boy from Suttons Corner who ran away from home when the troops marched by during the Civil War. He followed the troops and whittled his drum sticks by hand. He didn't return, but his drum sticks were returned by one of the troopers and are now in the museum.

Drummers at Gettsyburg.
