Lots of cannon bombs and smoke, but the only soldiers falling down were Union soldiers.......
Notice Nate is showing off his "sheriff's belt buckle" which he wore specifically for this event.
When we first saw Lincoln, who, in real life looked quite realistic, he was buying some bbq corn on the cob......Nate said, "Look, there's Lincoln, buying some corn with a five dollar bill that has his face on it."
February 16th, 17th & 18th 2008 (Presidents Day Weekend)
Imagine yourself under martial law in a town occupied by the Confederate army. Suddenly a cannon blasts, smoke fills the air, and a hundred Union soldiers come rushing in. Before you can turn to run, a battle is raging before your very eyes.
See what life was like for soldiers on both sides. Open pit cooking, canvas tents, no frills here!
Weekend Activities to include
Drills, Troop inspections, Cannon Demonstrations, Period Fashion Shows, Battles Morning & Afternoon, Gettysburg Address.
