150 YEARS!

If there is one OR two events that my home town is known for it is the First and Second Battles of Bull Run during the Civil War. The first battle was fought on July 21, 1861. This year marked the 150th anniversary and 8,700 reenactors came from all over the country to reenact the battle. It was amazing to walk around their encampments and get close up to the soldiers as they marched into battle. I was so impressed by the authenticity of it all. The temperature that weekend was about 105˚ so I my hat goes off to all those men and women who kept it “real” with all those hot, heavy layers. It was brutal in shorts and a tank top!
