A Re-enactment That's Rebel Worthy

The North getting ready to fire the cannon

The South in close combat battle

The Northern Army

The encampment was complete with the latest laundry facility


Boom, Boom, Boom
Southern and Northern Belles

The womenfolk honoring the fallen soldiers
This past Sunday hubby and I had an adventure visiting a Civil War re-enactment.  We had front row ground space to sit upon our blankets to watch the battle scene unfold.  The cannons were very LOUD and kept me jerking each time they were fired.  The encampment had North and South settlements complete with period tents, camp cook stoves, period dresses and battle uniforms.  Living history louder and larger than life.

I didn't know that any of the battles in the War of Northern Aggression were fought in Idaho! LOL

Hope you had a great time. :)

I love these things! LOTS of them down south.
I plan on seeing a few over the next 4 yrs of remembrance of the Civil War's 150th birthday

The costumes and the scenery look lovely.
I know that Norwegian immigrants were fighting on both sides of the civil war. More or less coincidently depending on where they had settled down to create a new future for themselves.

I admire the beautiful way the play is arranged.
Nevertheless, nothing can make me love war.
