This year marks the 150th Anniversary
of the beginning of the US Civil War.
This past weekend Neshaminy State Park
22nd Annual Civil War Re enactment.
It is one of the best re enactments
we have attended.
and being Civil War History buffs,
we have attended a few.
There were many re enactors
who made a weekend encampment
at the park.
What impressed me was how
I really felt like I was in a period Civil War encampment.
The re enactors went above and beyond
to keep modern day conveniences
out of view.
And being such a large encampment
you didn't see many other modern visitors.
Your view was constantly
an 1860s view.
From lunch time....
...the details were all vintage.
But my favorite part
was the Victorian era photographer.
He takes photos using Victorian era methods
and I was able to watch a photo in the making
from start to finish.
I will post on that later this week.
If you are local,
this is definitely an event worth
attending in the future.
