Couples dance the Soldiers Joy dance on Saturday night at the third annual George Washington Ball at the The George Washington Hotel in downtown Winchester. Proceeds from the event, conducted by the Victorian Dance Ensemble, benefit the Old Court House Civil War Museum on the Loudoun Street Mall. Dancers — many portraying Civil War figures such as Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee — took part in a number of dances, including a Grand March. Members of the Victorian Dance Ensemble were on hand to provide instruction. (Photo by Ginger Perry/The Winchester Star)
