When I grew up I was 11 and heard about a fife and drum corp. being formed and they were looking for members to fill all positions. I decided to sign up to play the fife. Our title is the Nathan Hale Corp. because his history began in Coventry, Ct. The homestead where he grew up is in the town where I grew up. As we know he was a teacher that was asked to be a spy and was hanged. The photo here is one taken after a competition . The following pages shows the work that went into getting ready for our first season. Our uniforms were exact replica of the period of 1776.
