I was invited to participate in a Living History program on the Gettysburg National Military Park by the 28th NC Infantry. This photo was taken at the North Carolina monument on Seminary Ridge.

Great stuff Punkin...military re-enactment is gathering more and more participants these days...people are beginning to realise that the roots of our society are drifting further and further back into the past and will be forgotten were it not for guys like you.

Cheers, Vince

Yep, that's me on the right. Take away the gear and I look like a worn out old farmer...

My reproduction 1853 Enfield shot pretty good when new (1981) but I haven't fired any real rounds through it in years. With a target load consisting of a 315 grain SWC Minie ball over 50 grains of Goex FFg powder it wasn't any effort to hit drink bottles at 75 yards while shooting standing. I'll have to take the old girl out to the range sometime and see how she does after running several thousand blanks through the barrel.

Reenacting has been great fun for me. I love seeing the spectators' faces when they ask questions and get to handle a musket for the first time. Especially the kids! My job has kept me away from it for most of the last ten years but I'm making an effort to participate in the 150th anniversary events.

I would love to visit the civil war battlefields but every time I get out east our schedule is just to busy. One of these trips everything will go right and we will have a little time.

Another shot I kinda like. Taken at the NC monument, behind the wall along the road. As near as I can tell there was actually a worm rail fence here during the battle.
