The sound of Militia men

On Tuesday nights, Medford is the practice ground for the Salem Zouaves, a group of militia reenactors together since 2000. The Zouaves honor the Salem Light Infantry, one of many such companies that protected Massachusetts towns in the old days. In the spring, when the Zouaves are practicing for Memorial Day, they can be heard marching through the streets.
