More Civil War re-enactors

According to President Abraham Lincoln, taking Chattanooga was as important to the Union troops as taking Richmond. Railway lines in Chattanooga linked major distribution points in the Confederacy. You can read more about the Battle of Chattanooga here.

Seeing this picture reminded me of all the "playing war" my brothers and sisters and I did as children. These guys are just continuing the game into adulthood, aren't they. Except maybe they're actually learning a little history in the process. We were just making it up as we went along.

I'm returning your courtesy visit to mine, thanks. Actually, I saw the name & thought:"AT last my sister has finally gotten around to visiting my blog!" No chance!
So what a surprise to find you in Chattanooga! I met a family from your town 8 years ago. It was on top of Massada,Israel, the hill fortress abovethe Dead Sea where the Jews made their last stand, enduring a 3-year siege by the Romans in AD 60-ish. They all committed suicideratherthan betaken prisoner. Anyway, the dad of the family & my partner's Dad both turned out to be nuclear physicists - small world! Your civil war was truly awful. I have read a lot. I can't understand people renacting battles anywhere. I agree with Annie's comment. Boys & toys.
