Listen to this story
One of the largest Civil War reenactments in the region takes place at Robert Moses State Park in Massena this weekend. Music, cannon fire, military drills and campfire stories are part of the event. More than 5,000 men from St. Lawrence County enlisted in the Civil War, and New York contributed more soldiers to the war than any other state. Todd Moe caught up with John Baylis, of Cassville, NY, during last summer's event. Baylis, who has studied Lincoln's life for years, will portray "Honest Abe" again this weekend.
