Homage to Our Brave Soldiers

civil war 118


I got the privilege to see a Civil War Re-enactment this Memorial weekend in Deep Creek, WA.

It was a lovely cool day, in a beautiful setting.  Lots of tents were setup, just like homes during the Civil War times.  Entire families lived in these over the weekend.

Here is my childhood girl friend, Phyllis with her friend, Jim, who plays many hats, as sheriff,  judge, post master, scout, etc.

And she’s no angel, she pulls a small pistol against a very surprised governor.

In the end a duel takes place and the governor is shot.
