Civil War Weekend

Last weekend marked my official "I've been a Civil War reenactor for a year" anniversary. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was spilling punch on my dress at my first reenactment. I've outgrown silly things like that.(yeah...well...I'll just keep telling myself that.)

We had a lovely tea party with good friends, hot apple cider, lots of baked goods and way too many bees. 

There was a Civil War ball and my little sister was able to come and stay the night at camp. That was her first time staying over at a reenactment. A huge thanks to my mom who took most of the pictures below!

The lovely Michaela and Allison.

We were in a parade on Sunday...

We reenacted the 1863 Richmond Bread Riot. I had a hard time acting hungry and mad so I just ended up smiling through most of it. Oops.

Taking down camp. Bittersweet!

I would be smelling my Civil War dresses to soak in the campfire smell if I didn't have a cold right now. Maybe I'll just wait to wash them until my cold goes away. =)
