Civil war Skirmish

We left this morning about 9:30 and headed for the town of Fort Meade. Just on the east side of town is a park. This is where the reenactment was held. We got there and walked around as the battle did not start till 1:30 so we had some time to wait. We ate a taco on fry bread. Probably not the best for us but we split it. It had a lot of stuff on it. We did not bring chairs so we had to stand most of the time. Thelma found a stump to sit on. We have been to other reenactments and this one was pretty small.  It is called the battle of Bowlegs Creek.  We picked up some literature on the 150 battle of Shiloh which is going to be March 30 - April 1 It is in Tennessee. This might work for us on the way home. Will have to see if I can find parks up that way. Okay here is some pictures

They also had a festival along with this reenactment. They had this clogging group. We watched for a bit and then headed for home. The dog above belonged to a sutler or vendor. They sell stuff. Had quite a few of them Here are the clogging group a couple of pictures One real cutie

Don't know how old she is but she looked like she hadn't been doing it all that long. Tomorrow our friends from Ky are coming over. They are staying at a state park about an hour from here. We went to seem them Wed.  Well that is it for tonight Gonna hit the bed early tonight as I think the sun did a job on us. Later all Ron Thelma and Eli

  1. Ashley and McKenzie both took clogging in dance a couple of years ago. I think it looks like fun but I don't think it is as easy as it looks. Sounds like you are having a good time. Sure wish you could send some of that warmth our way.
