A moving renenactment of the Cedar Creek Battle. Enough to bring a lump to your throat and a tear to your eye.

The program said: 2:30, Cavalry Skirmish. I was expecting some lame thing with a couple of guys riding around. Next, cannon fire erupts from both ridges, skirmish lines move forward, cavalry engage and then I look to my right to see a column of what appears to be the ‘entire’ Union army approaching, before the two lines of infantry deploy and engage. Excellent stuff.

  1. In the mid-90s, I was in a re-enactment at Cedar Creek.

    It was a very, very interesting time.

    I was a Yankee soldier, and “captured” by some Confederates in a non-public skirmish.

    They took me to their camp, and that is where I began to question the Myth of Mr. Lincoln and FedGov’s one-way story on the war.
