Civil War, Cedar Creek, Virginia, 2012

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.
