Civil War Weekend

Oh what fun! I have always wanted to go and see a reenactment of some type! This weekend... in a little tiny town not to far from us... They had a Civil War reenactment. We didn't get to spend as much time as we wanted to their, but it was a lot of fun for the time we did get to spend. We decided next year we will try and make it for the entire day on Saturday, instead of a partial day on Sunday.

I took a ton of pictures, but I don't want to bore you. *Ü* So here are my favorite few...

The camp set up looks great. Those mothers looking for their sons would be hard to watch in any age.

We went to a Civil War encampment a few years ago. WE've wanted to go again many times, but it has never worked out. This makes me want to go NOW. lol Glad you had fun!
