For over 25 years, I have helped with packing, driving, setup, take-down, and more for historical reenactments, related to Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, Civil War, and Roman Legion. I do not participate in the actual reenactment, since I am busy working on my applique pursuits while the reenactments are going on. (Original blog -- Applique on the Go.)
The following photos show some of the scenes in the Union camp (North) representing the Civil War during a recent reenactment in the state of Rhode Island.
A deceptively tranquil scene. Beyond the hill is the busy Union camp. (Notice the Union flag at the top of the hill, left center.)
The Confederates (South) are coming!
