        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.

              This takes place each year in October. It is an excellent event to attend, if only to imagine yourself among those ranks, facing a wicked fight.

                Hmmm
                real men use flintlocks and hawks. :yahoo:

                We were at this as 60th Royal Americans instead of our usual Ranger setup.
