I thought I would present you this small assortment of pictures from the Civil War Living History and Reenactment event at Confederate Reunion Grounds last month (as if you hadn’t already seen enough pictures, if you follow me on Facebook). Between School Day on the Friday, and public days Saturday to Sunday, I kept pretty busy, with over a thousand people passing through our gates! The reenactment is a popular annual event with some of the local schools, home-schoolers, and loyal reenactors who say they come every year. While I spent too much time stuck at the gift shop tent, my favorite parts of the event were meeting some of the educators, seeing the costumes and watching the dancing at the Reenactors’ Ball, seeing men get silly during the battle reenactment (“go back to hell you scavengers!!”), buying both a Union and Confederate cap (I’m an opportunist, like a carpetbagger), and having my family there to see my first major event here as Educator at the Confederate Reunion Grounds.
Thanks to everyone for coming or participating, and until next year, you scalawags!
