A while back, we did a medical reenactment, and the kids had a great time. So Dan found this battle reenactment not too far from the house so we decided it would make for a fun afternoon. Only we weren't entirely prepared as we decided to leave about 20 minutes before we absolutely had to leave in order to watch the battle!
During a bathroom break, Rose convinced me she and James really needed little flags to wave, especially since I didn't get her any for the Fourth of July.
There were a ton of soldiers, this is only a small contingent of the Union Army.
We were probably 20 yards from one of the cannons, and it was pretty loud when it went off, but the kids didn't seem to mind, even John.
So cute in their period hats, even if they were tired from trekking around all afternoon. It took about 5 minutes for everyone to fall asleep on the ride home.
