The War Is Over

Over the weekend, Buchanan held a Civil War re-enactment.



The Blue and Gray were in full force all over the tiny community.



Saturday we went to see what was happening. We missed most of the parade.



Down on the ball field, they held a mock battle, complete with cannons and lots of smelly smoke.



The soldiers charged one another and hit their swords together with mighty clangs.



Meanwhile, the rebs took shots at the Union men as they marched down the field.



I couldn't tell you who won this little battle.



I am pretty sure I know who won the real war, though.

  1. Oh, I'm so jealous! They don't have anything like that up here in PA. The history here consists of Mellon, Carnegie, Heinz and all the other rich dudes they can muster up from the past. I miss real history!

  2. OT: Did that storm hit you? The news said SE VA but I'm not sure what part you are in.
