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.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

There seems to be a sense of relief that the battle is over! A wonderful image Judy! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Fridays they demonstrate for school children, Saturday for the public (the day we went) and then they do it again on Sunday, so it's a tiring weekend for all of them!

Scott F. Schilling from San Martin, United States

Great shot Judy and I hope you are having a nice weekend!

@Scott F. Schilling: Thanks, Scott ... and it was a beautiful weekend weather wise, but sadly it's over.

Loner from Wörgl, Austria

Hallo, Judy ! Das Foto hast du sehr gut getroffen. Trotzdem verstehe ich nicht, warum erwachsene Männer solche Spiele brauchen.

@Loner: Hallo Sonja ... Ich bin mit den Google-Übersetzer, so weiß nicht, ob dies richtig oder nicht. ... Als Grund für Männer "brauchen diese Spiele", ist es für die Zwecke der reenacting eigentlichen Schlachten des Bürgerkrieges in den USA.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Do they get a trophy?

3 Apr 2011 5:20pm

@Curly: No, no trophies are given ... these units just move about the state to reconstruct another battle ;D

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

These battles must be so interesting to see. Do you get a feel for what that war was really like?

4 Apr 2011 12:01am

@B. Thomas: In an obscure sense you do. Of course their guns didn't shoot far or aim very well ... here they're using blanks.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I am just happy the Confederates didn't win the war.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

It is a tremendous thing whis enactment they're undertaking and appropriate recognition should go to all of them for the whole work. BUT...a director making such a movie would most certainly want ALL the participants to be ACTING the part....and in your photo NOT all of them do! I find it a bit distracting!

@Japanalia: If this was a movie set and they were being paid for their time, I am SURE it would be different! <smile>
