Re-enactment

I’m not going to lie that I got a little bit more excited about this than I should.  Driving through Gettysburg had me feeling like a kid in a candy store. Then I saw reenactors.  Oh my!  I felt like I had just tasted my first piece of candy.

All of these boys in their Confederate Greys, but the one that was wearing Union Blue (I think he forgot which side he was standing for that fine Sunday afternoon).  I was so giddy.  I had been wanting to see one for a long time, but unfortunately they are rare in my neck of the woods.

It was very interesting as they showed order of command and the basics of how things work.  However, seeing them standing there made me think of a line from one of my favorite movies, “Sweet Home Alabama”.  It is the part (for those that have seen it) where Bobby Ray says, “You know us Southerns. I mean, the minute the Confederacy died it became immortal.”   Ha…so true and these boys had the whole nine yards going on.  I’ll be going again.

  1. Wonderful photographs! I loved visiting Gettysburg and Antietam a few years ago – my brother lives near Harpers Ferry, so we wandered all over, finding various Civil War sites. Such an interesting area.
