Well It Was Short and Sweet

Fascinating little bit of history shared in our town. I picked up lots of free information about battle reinactments that will be taking place around here or within a 2 hour drive of here. We do live in an extremely important place for national history which in and of itself is amazing.

The actors were allowing people the opportunity to shoot the guns. G didn't want to do that because they were quite loud however she did "hold" one for a picture. She even posed with a man and his wife who play General Grant and Julia Grant at times. Today however they were just "civilian" actors in period costumes.

I love re-enactments, it makes it so much easier to imagine what life was like, watching history come to life again!
