I've been to a couple of these and have been very impressed with the people taking part. Thanks for the wonderful pictures.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySusan at Stony River10:33 AMOh WOW. I love living history!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyDaryl11:11 AMI love seeing the re-enactors, they take it all very seriously ..ReplyDeleteRepliesReplySylvia K11:30 AMThese are so terrific, Sandy! Love seeing history come alive! Great post!Enjoy!SylviaReplyDeleteRepliesReplyLisa at Greenbow12:00 PMThere is a reenactment here every May. They reenact battles etc. They call it the Rendezvous. Fun to go see every so often. Great photos here.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyMojo12:03 PMAnyone who voluntarily parades around in a heavy wool suit in the middle of the summer like that cannot possibly be in full possession of his faculties IMO. I wonder how they decide who has to fall down and play dead. There must be some kind of system in place, just for the sake of historic accuracy, right?Great photos though. And one that looks eerily familiar actually.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyYogi♪♪♪12:39 PMI don't understand the reenactors but I'm glad they are there for us. I've seen trapper reenactors here in Oklahoma and Battle of the Alamo reeanctors in San Antonio.From what I read they certainly go for authenticity. TMI to explain.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyThe Dark Lord12:56 PMA rather revealing, colourful collection you put up there! Just love the images...ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyCheffie-Mom1:27 PMWow! What a neat celebration of history!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyIndrani1:43 PMGreat sequence of shots, all very new to me. I love such history sessions!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyMaggie2:02 PMI think this is one of the saddest wars ever fought by Americans.It is a shame that it took a war to try and show the South the truth of slavery and the need to abolish it.I believe in state`s rights but not when those rights not equal for all living in those states.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyQuiet Paths2:04 PMI've seen a couple of these gatherings over the years and it is like stepping back into time... Great photos.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyAmias (ljm and liquidplastic)3:13 PMEveryone is entitle to display what they are most proud of about their history, it is allowed. Too bad they have so many lies about in the History books, and this should not be allowed.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJames3:14 PMThat is what I want to do. I drove through Virgina and heard a radio ad about a really nice one. Maybe I can see one at Gettysburg.Outstanding post Sandy!ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyThis Is My Blog - fishing guy3:39 PMSandy: That is so nice and I even saw Honest Abe walking along.ReplyDeleteRepliesReplyJanice / Dancing with Sunflowers3:44 PMGreat sequence of shots, and I really get a feel of what it must be like to have been there.

Really an excellent post.Here in Piedmont and in Tuscany as well, there are often war celebrations but I must say I don't like them: I think war must be always remembered but not celebrated.
