Cedar Creek 2009

For the third year, we went to the re-enactment of The Battle of Cedar Creek in Middletown, VA. It was the first year, that both boys were scouts. Not many photo's taken of the battle as it was raining for a portion of the time there. The scouts that were there on Saturday, visited a camp and were told about how they camped, living in camp, and their guns. Here are the photo's I took this year:
An officer fixing a meal.

Camp, in between rows of tents.

Camp stove; this is how their meals were
cooked and how they kept warm. At times the
grates where left behind.

Explaining the weapons used during the Civil War.
Camp kitchen; the lid to the crate folds down to
become a counter top. Personally, I really like the
stoneware. It's beautiful.

Dulcimer we bought while there. The boys
thought I'd like with ones with hearts or such for
the sound holes. I really liked the one with the knot holes
best. It's not a hard instrument to learn. Kevin's learning more
quickly than I am though. He's been playing stringed instruments
a whole lot longer than I have though.
