Portrayals, Front Royal

This wraps up my series on the Battle of Front Royal Reenactment. I enjoy seeing people in historical costumes!

Several people have commented that they had not heard of this battle. It was pretty much a step in a series of actions as Stonewall Jackson kept Union troops busy in the Shenandoah Valley so that they could not join the campaign around Richmond. It was unusual in that it was fought in the streets of the town (although later there was urban fighting in nearby Winchester, and towns along the Valley Pike saw plenty of action).

  1. Hello, looks like a fun time and photos from the reenactment. The historical costumes are great. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  2. I think re-enactments are always good and interesting to go and watch.

    Your photo's are excellent.

    All the best Jan

  3. Stonewall was pretty good at mucking up the works for whoever he was fighting against, after all. That first shot is my favourite.

  4. Great photos!
    I enjoy seeing people in historical costumes, too!

    Have a lovely Sunday!
