Civil War repost from 2013




These photos were take several years ago at the Railroad Museum Civil War Encampment. They are among my favorite photos and most of you have not seen them.

I would enjoy something like this. Interesting how they have their guns stacked together in that one picture. I looked at the last picture for a while trying to figure out what was in that pan. Is that ham?

Much of my family research takes me to this time in history. Your photos help me envision the era.

On Netflix I am watching a movie called LongMire.
It is the Indians have tents like this. And it is full of suspense. Indian tribes. The good wit the bad.


It has 3 years of continued episodes.

So what your showing is similar.

Thank you for sharing this reconstruction of a piece of history. I like these sepia coloured photos, and have some of my grandparents wedding that have the same tonal values.

I love the sepia color (that is what you call it right)?
Each picture re enactment looks very authentic.
I woke up with a nasty head cold....moving slow today.

Love these photos from your archives. The color sure makes them feel like history for real...
Hope Blogger gets things straightened out for you.

I remember almost all of them! Except for all the pots, and the ham cooking. Now I'm hungry.

Wow, is right!
These make me want to learn more about the Civil War encampment!
Certainly, that smudge on our Nation's history isn't anything to be romanticized - as I'm guilty of having done ... but these images sure pique my interest!

Thanks for the repeat!

I am grateful every day we still don't have to live like this. Can you imagine wearing wool in this heat??
