My reenactment

Recommended Posts

It was fantastic. Over 9000 reenactors showed up and we fought along a 2 mile stretch of fields, woods, camps and hills. This was the 140th anniversary of the battle of cedar creek. The north actually won that battle so we did it just like it was back then. We pushed the north back and nearly won until another union division came up and chased us away.

Heres the account;

 

we we're chasing the yankees up a little hill and there was a giant hill behind that from which we could only see the top of it from the bottom of the little hill and so we go over the little hill and we reform at the top to shoot and midway up the big hill there was 6 canons pointed at the 3 battalions that went up the hill and thay all fired at once. We would have actually been slaughtered right there if it was a real battle but we went on to push them back behind a house and thru a river bed where they brought up a gigantic line of troops from behind their 2nd line of canons which was where we ran like hell to get away and we lost eventually.

 

But the bad thing about these large scale battles is that injuries are alot more frequent. I saw about 10 ambulences come to our camp and our side of the battlefield. 2 that i know and saw was an artilleryman tripped and his canon rolled down the hill over his ankle and the other guy fell into a fire.

 

I'll dig up some pictures today or tomorrow to post on here.
