All Dressed up for 1864

Here are a few more photos from the re-enactment at Cedar Creek Battlefield. Actually, this part of the event depicted the Battle of Guard Hill which took place not far away. The Battle of Cedar Creek was enacted on Saturday and I did not attend.

Here we see some of the period costumes worn by participants.

Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz tells an entertaining story about re-enacting and then goes on to explore other aspects of our attitudes on the American Civil War. (The link will take you to the book on Amazon.com. Buy it there and earn me a few cents towards a new book!)
