New Market Reenactment, Sunny Day

The actual Battle of New Market took place on a rainy day but the 2010 reenactment fell on a beautiful sunny day. I imagine most of the participants were happy with the nice weather. Losing your shoes in mud (as happened to many soldiers in 1864) would not be fun.
The troops with the white (and colored emblem) flag represent the VMI cadets.
