This year we commemorated Veteran's Day by attending a Civil War Re-enactment. I don't think the girls knew quite what to expect. It really was like stepping back into history.
These people know their stuff and take things to a crazy serious level. I was actually blown away by their passion & commitment. It's inspiring.
We were witness to The Wheat Field Fight at the Battle of Gettysburg...and to Pickett's Charge.
Abraham Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address. 2 1/2 minutes. That's all it took.
At some point during the speech Zion wanted to know... "Does this count as "school?"
And I absolutely love that 100's of little boys and girls were running around bearing arms.
