Civil War

We went to the Civil War Reenactment yesterday. Nathan had a fantastic time. 

He loves cannons. He wishes he could be one of the people who get to load the cannons and fire them. 

Waiting for the battle to begin. 

These guys on horseback kept shooting back and forth at each other. Eventually, the union soldier got hit and died. 

The rebels had 2 cannons. 

The smoke rings were pretty neat. 

I'm surprised I got pictures of them! 

Nathan was quite interested in watching the battle. 

The union soldiers would fire. 

The confederates would fire back. 

After the battle, Abraham Lincoln gave a speech and answered some questions. 

Elizabeth was not so interested in the battle or the artillery demo so I went with her to climb trees and watched her play on the playground equipment. 

She played on her favorite rock in the river. 

She wanted to pose there. 

She collected many rocks and sticks. 

A picture with Rattlesnake Mountain in the far distance. 

We also explored all the tents.
