Took the time machine out for a spin today back to 1861. Works pretty well, don’t you think? Alexandria is a feast for history buffs. These men were actually at Fort Ward doing a Civil War reenactment, which occurs on a regular basis. Here they are unloading ordinance from the caisson, after which they fired a cannon (with gunpowder only).
I saw something like this on tv once where they re-play whole battles!
Yes, they do. Next month there is another reenactment scheduled where there will be both Confederate and Union army participants. Stay tuned! 🙂
