This past weekend we attended a reenactment at Mexia, Tx and had a wonderful time seeing old friends, and introducting new friends to the hobby.
Notice the numbers?
I think we totally could have done a quick musical performance of '7 Brides for 7 Brothers.' lol.
Breakfast - scrambled eggs, bisquits and gravy
The guys got called over for roll call when they had just filled their plates with breakfast. But, the lieutenant was kind and said they could eat while in formation. This made me laugh.
Cim was made a Corporal for the weekend, as there were no other officers from the 7th Texas Dismounted present. He was glad to be able to command his own little group, and they went out to drill that morning before the battle, in which they played a very important part.
It's become a tradition for us to go on 'midnight walks' in the moonlight on Friday and Saturday nights.
We always have a grand time visiting, snapping surprise pictures, and playing pranks!
The goodies all of us girls had brought didn't last long with so many hungry Confederates in our camp.....
A moment of prayer before the battle on Sunday.
