Our First Taste of Civil War Re-enacting!

We have just returned from Aiken South Carolina for our very first 'dip' into Civil War Re-enactment. We are so happy and tired! We just 'dressed' one day.... and Daniel wasn't exactly accurate and Amelia had on a too big borrowed dress, and our undergarments were not all accurate... but, in spite of all of that we were complimented by other re-enactors for being so accurate. We had an ABSOLUTELY HAD A GREAT TIME! I do not have time for a long post, but here are a couple pictures....

Oh... just have to mention that the hats the boys are wearing were made by the seamstress of the 'Gods and Generals' movie and were fasioned by scraps of fabric from the movie clothing... makes them more of a keep sake and they are accurate for civilian boys of the Civil War era.
