             Then Jesus said to his disciples,

"If anyone would come after me,  he must first deny himself and

take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life

will lose it, but whoever loses  his life for me will find it. 

           ( Matt. 16:24 )

No Bugles No Drums



Around 1970, I heard they were going to make a movie

out in Doddridge County, about a big battle in the Civil

War. Martin Sheen was the star and David Nelson

 (of Ozzie and Harriet fame) was the director.


A few weeks before production was to begin, the

producer and director asked for volunteers from

the area to be in  the movie as extras - as soldiers,

some in gray, some in blue.


Some of my friends and I volunteered and went out

to rural Doddridge County. I had on a blue uniform

fighting for the North. The battle began and the noise

was deafening, there was a lot of smoke, and the

director was running all over the place.


After the battle, Martin Sheen came over and patted

Melanie on the head. She was dressed like a little,

old fashioned girl. She sat beside David Nelson most

of the time. It was very interesting and a lot of fun

to be in, and be able to watch it being made.


Several weeks later, the world premier was held

 at the Robinson Grand Theatre. It was packed.

A true story.
