...and I guess my true colors are showing; apologies to all my southern friends!

This closes my Civil War reenactment series for now.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

tyan from Singapore, Singapore

this is a spectacular sight! Love the framing with the American flag at the side.My friend just gave me some second hand clothes for the boys and one of the pants was that of an American flag.Lawrence said it wasnt very respectful wearing a country's flag on the butt so I am shelving it:)

i really enjoyed this "historic" series, and - as it should be - the "good" win in the end ... ;-)) a terrific last installment, with the gunsmoke rising over the victorious troops!
