Noble Steeds

I've never thought of myself as a horse enthusiast, but I really enjoyed seeing the beautiful horses at the re-enactment yesterday. They were so graceful and well-trained!

However, after the cavalry charge, I thought about all the poor animals who died in Civil War battles and I felt very sad for them. They knew nothing about the politics behind the war and had no choice but to do what they had been trained to do.
