Memorial Day we went to a Civil War re-enactment. This wasn’t our first time. Missed last year because the kids and I were on Road trip 2010 to visit my cousins in Minnesota. And to say ‘see you later’ to my cousin Jamie. I blogged here about one previous visit to the re-enactment. This year the price went way up…the last time we went it was $11 Monday we paid $10 per adult and $5 per child. There were a few changes that I noticed in the camps. Not enough to warrant $25 admission though
Below are pictures I managed to get. The kids went off with friends so not many, if any, with them.
I do believe this is a replica….correct me if I am wrong…you know, if you are a history buff.

Pictures of camp. The middle is set up as one would be for a family….love the miniature bunk bed in the 3rd picture
For my friend from Alabama

My next School Outside the Classroom post is about what we did after the re-enactment…..watch for it next Friday
Below are the same pictures above that I used my iPhone apps to play with…..
