Civil War Re-enactment in Brandenburg

Saturday, July 10, Meg and I drove down to the riverfront park in Brandenburg to watch the Civil War re-enactment.

Turned out that one of our good friends, Eddie Franke, was involved. This was Eddie's 'crib' for the weekend.

The battle began at 3. Eddie is in the light blue shirt. His son is the one past him with the leveled gun.

They faced calvary charges...

...and cannon fire.

The dead littered the field.

Eventually, the confederate leader had to admit defeat.

The union leader leveled charges as they negotiated the surrender.

The crowd loved it. Great job, guys!
