Default Civil War: 150th Anniv. of Bull Run/Manassas

We braved the Hades-like weather yesterday (along with thousands of spectators and almost 9,000 actors!) to attend the Sesquicentennial Reenactment of the Battle of Bull Run in Manassas, VA. The scope of the event was quite amazing, with filming helicopters hovering and some of the most amazing cameras and lenses I've ever seen, many of which I'm sure belonged to Discovery, Nat Geo, etc.

In the 3 hours we sweltered in the sun, I took nearly 2,000 photos (10GB!) - here are a few of my favorites. I wasn't sure where exactly to post them, but they all feature people, so this must be the place

Terrific shots. A time in history that shouldnt have happened, but one a lot wouldnt want to miss seeing, if they had the chance.

Thanks! And yes, even back during the actual war the battleground was bordered by spectators who had traveled in to see the fighting! Crazy people!

Thanks a lot everyone. The only downside was the intense heat, but actually every 1/2 hour or so a nice breeze would roll through and give a little relief

It really almost felt like being on a movie set, it was amazing the intensity and dedication of the actors!
