After returning from my vacation I had a couple of weeks before I was heading out to take more pictures. This time it was just a short trip to Gibson Ranch to watch the annual Civil War re-enactment.

I was really impressed with the levels of detail people had put into their outfits and props, everything from the black powder muskets and rifles to the simple things like a bath tub.

Peoples knowledge of the history of the time and their willingness to share this with all of us who came to watch was really wonderful as well.

It's just over there!

 

It made for a very enjoyable day. The battle was certainly the highlight complete with the deafening boom of cannons.
