Guardians of the Eastern

  • Glover's Regiment appears to become guardians of the Eastern Yacht Club as they fire during the annual Delaware crossing reenactment

Not long after capturing Glover’s Regiment on the stage at the State Street Landing, I watched them load up into this boat and reenact the crossing of the Delaware. I shot frame after frame as they crossed in front of Marblehead Light and then watched them pause in front of the Eastern Yacht Club.

As I watched through the viewfinder, I spotted one member of the regiment approach the bow and captured this image as he fired a shot back toward shore. It looked as though Glover’s Regiment were the guardians of the Eastern – ready to take on all who might try to pass.

    I am an Ol’ Header living 1 town away from Washington Crossing PA. Often attend the reenactment of George and Glover’s Marblehead fisherman crossing the Delaware to face the Hussians at Trenton. I used to wear my father’s long Marblehead football overcoat! There is a monument at the Park crediting Marblehead’s contribution to that great victory. Proud to be connected to both places!
