Civil War Weekend

Over the weekend, my sister and I took part in a local Civil War reenactment. There's always a let down after reenactments. There's so much prep and excitement in the weeks leading up to it and then I'm just like,"Wait. It's already over?!" But it was a fantastic weekend with some of my favorite people. Prepare yourself for tons of pictures. =)

Bobby, our little neighbor for the weekend. What a cutie!

The ball was lovely as usual! Such fun!  

I wish I was on the other side for this shot. The blood capsules are so cool in a horrible kind of way.

And that wraps up the reenacting season! I'm hoping to do more WWII and Civil War events next year. I can't wait!

    1. There are quite a few smaller reenactments that are local, but there's also the big reenactments like Gettysburg, Cedar Creek, and Antietam to name a few! Thanks for commenting!

  4. WOW! That was epic! I totally want to do historical re-enacting again. I did it colonial and civil war re-enacting years and years ago, and these gorgeous pictures remind me of how much fun it was! Did you make your dress?

    1. That's so cool that you've done colonial and Civil War reenacting before! Reenacting is so much fun! No, I didn't make my dress. A friend of the family, Jeanette Anderson, made it for me. She also made my WWII dress. =)
