ISLE OF WIGHT – A local Civil War re-enactor is recovering after apparently being shot while participating in a scene for a Civil War documentary in Isle of Wight County over the weekend. County Sheriff C.W. Phelps said that 72-year-old Thomas R. Lord Sr. was released from a hospital and is recovering at home. Phelps identified Lord as a retired police officer living in Suffolk. The circumstances of the shooting are still unclear, and Phelps said investigators are still trying to determine how Lord was shot. A spokeswoman for the Isle of Wight County Museum said it happened as part of a documentary filming in Heritage Park on Saturday.

    I’ll tell you how it happened, because a guy in my old unit was shot in the neck during a Gettysburg reenactment. Someone jackhole brought a REAL civil war weapon, and it was still loaded from the war. No one checked it or cleaned it, and it was fired at someone.

    Happens more often than we’d like to think.
