Tonya {The Traveling Praters}

When we lived in the south, we visited quite a few Civil War sites. Petersburg was one of those. For a time, my family tossed around the idea of becoming reenactors. We didn't, but I do enjoy visiting reenactments.

Dominique King

Tonya-It's fun to visit the re-enactments. The re-enactors are really dedicated and I'm not sure I'd have the energy to do that :)

Gretchen Garrison

A bit jealous of the fact that you have such a close-up view of history. We don't seem to have Civil War re-enactments in Nebraska ... Someday I will just have to make a point of going to one myself.

Dominique King

Gretchen-I'm not so much for the battle re-enactments, but I love going to these things to take photos around the camps and to talk with the re-enactors as they are doing some of the everyday activities like sitting around the campfire, cooking a meal, making horseshoes, etc.
