A picture a day from around the Roanoke, VA area.
Yes, indeed - that's a mighty big gun for such a lil girl! WoW! It's HUGE!
Awesome gun! Check out the bayonette on the front end.. YOUCH! What fun for the kids.DiThe Blue RIdge Gal
Lets hope she doesn't have any complaints about the photo or you'll be in her sights! Lol!
She's tiny but she's strong, isn't she? This is a great "shot", Tanya.
Reenactments are a great way to make history come alive, but there is also a need to be careful. In the 1970's I used to work for the Congressman in whose district Antietam Battlefield is located. During a reenactment one of the soldiers forgot to take the ramrod out of the barrel of his musket. The ramrod when flying right over the crowd of spectators, fortunately missing everyone.
I can imagine. The gun looks longer than her!
Old guns were really long!The whole series of the battle of Buchanan is very interesting. (We have also 'reconstruction groups', but there aren't any important historical battles near my home...)
