I’m still trying to figure out this spacing for captions under photos thing. WordPress, I like you, but you’re still a bit frustrating from time to time.
Today I went to a Civil War reenacting event at Hale Farm and Village in Bath, Ohio, with my dad. It was the first event of this kind for either one of us to attend, so it was all new to us and we both really enjoyed ourselves. We got to watch a very informative Fashion Show, see Abe Lincoln give an address, view various items for sale along Sutler’s Row, then watch a reenactment of the Third Battle of Winchester.
And note to self: wear better shoes. I wore my very worn-out runners (I have a hole in my right shoe from a rock puncturing through to my sock) and… well, my right sock is brown from the dirt paths and it also got a hole (I think a new rock made its way up the hole), and the shoe’s hole got a bit bigger 😛 So now I need a new pair of shoes haha. I really thought that I could get a few more months of walking out of them… le sigh
So, how about two photos from today?
During Abe Lincoln’s address, this Confederate woman kept giving him snarky remarks. She was quite amusing and she was standing in front of me when I finally squeaked my way to the near-front of the crowd. She was happy when I asked if I could get a photo with her, she was really nice! The guy in this photo had given a speech before welcoming Lincoln to the floor, and he got some sass from this lady as well. … and after this photo was taken, they walked off arm-in-arm like friends 🙂 Awww, how sweet! haha
Have you ever been to a historical reenacting event?
