"Let us cross over the river, and rest under the shade of the trees..."

... after we whoop them Rebs, of course!

This great picture provided with the courtesy and kindness of Gracie Ackerman of the 4th Michigan.

Skirmish Wolcott Mill

These great images are through the courtesy of Kristina Scarcelli... the great great granddaughter of Abner Austin who served in the Civil War and was wounded at Gettysburg... Thank you!

This event, north of Detroit, MI... was the Last Final Measure for the Civil War reenacting season. And it was a terrific end to an especially wondrous year!
