Civil War Re-enactments & more!!

~Civil War Re-enactments............We had a blast at the Civil War re-enactment in Lexington, Mo.  It was in September, and my Grandma came and we camped out on the grounds in a tent and roasted strawberry marshmellows over a campfire.  We set up our own little stand and sold checkerboards that my brother made, and books that I wrote.  There were many other tents set-up with all sorts of neat things.  From ladies fans to jarred pickles there were all kinds of nicknacks in the many set-ups. The soldiers camp out was set over on the other side of Big River Ranch building.  The camp out was very authentic, with campfires and canvas tents and dressed-up men from both sides.  I met a girl named Leah while I was there, and I helped her with her petting zoo she was doing.
The Re-enactment was on Saturday, and my were the canons loud!  BOOM!  I wore my grandma's blue satin gown that she wore when she was 18, and a red velvet shawl.  It was cold and gloomy, but the acting was still amazing.  Horses galloped and combat enacted.  I thought it was very well done.  The Re-enactment lasted till Sunday, and I wish I could have said that we stayed for the Ball that night.  But even though we had to leave, I'm sure it was fun. The last re-enactment I did they had a ball and it was so fun!  There was food and drinks, and authentic music playing while we danced the Virginia Reel and other dances with the boys and men dressed up as soldiers!  The ladies dress in fancy gowns with wide hoop skirts, and it seems like we stepped back to 1860's.
I highly recommend re-enactments, especially for history lovers.
