The battle was a reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg but I'm not sure how accurately the battle was depicted. Not that it really mattered that much to me. I was pleasantly surprised by the scale of the battle and the event. There was also quite a few children involved and you could tell this was a family hobby for many of the participants. Very cool.
The event included mounted cavalry, infantry and artillery. One of the highlights was the cannons being hooked up (I'm sure there is an official term for this) to the horses and then pulled on to the battlefield. The authenticity of it all enhanced by the soldiers in charge barking orders. There was also a war correspondent with what seemed to be a branch hanging out of his bag and I'm wondering what the branch is. I didn't get a chance to talk to him and ask.
We had a great time and I'm finding the reenactments are something I have been enjoying very much when I get the chance to see them. Hopefully, there will be a bunch of WWII reenactors like last year in the local Air Show in early May. I have quite a few picture of these on my blog and hope to add more.
On a side note, I seem to be having an internal, OCD struggle with re-enactment versus reenactment. It appears both are correct and it is common to see a hyphen between two vowels?
Here are some pictures I took in no particular order:
