    My DH insisted on taking a camera into battle this past weekend at Fort Branch where they hold an annual civil war reenactment.

    DH was a yankee because there's always a shortage at Branch, you'll see the blue jackets.

    Here's a cool video he got. It's called "Ronnie's Down"

    Quote:They did the battle in the cotton field next to the fort. You can see from some of the pictures the last 6" of the cotton plant sticking up out of the ground. I felt bad for the guys when they "died" falling on those stiff sticks. I also thought the horses would have bloody legs after running all through it.

    We only had 2 problems all weekend. A guy was sleeping to close to the fire and caught his blanket and his coat on fire...at 3 in the morning. [​IMG] And a guy feel off his horse and broke his arm.
