We recently took in the Civil War Re-enactors event down at Fort Stevens near Warrenton, OR put on by the Northwest Civil War Council. It is a three day event that is scheduled for the Labor Day weekend each year. We originally attended it several years ago when our kids were high school age.
This time around we had our #2 grandchild with us. We arrived early (got a parking space right up front) and stayed through the afternoon battle. We did catch both battles during our day there (skirmishes really), one in the morning (the South won), and the other in the afternoon (the North won).
Following are some of our photos – caught by my wife’s sure hand.
Some celebrities in the mix.
Then there was the cavalry.
Where our grandson –
…lined up on this rider.
I saw these guys (Louisiana Tiger Zouaves):
and wanted to follow up on them – an ancestor of mine was a Zouave in a northern unit. Karen got this great shot –
All in all a great day a Fort Stevens.
