An Afternoon in 1863

My wife and I have a great time at a local re-enactment event today at Green Springs, Ohio. The 21st Ohio Volunteer Infantry were among participants for a small action based on the ACW Battle of Gray Goose Creek, June 21 1863, itself a prelude to bigger events at Gettysburg. Although space precluded anything larger it was a fun demonstration, and the 3-inch rifled cannon got to fire.

Among the re-enactors were President Abraham Lincoln and local hero General James McPherson. It was fun to chat with these chaps, as they knew a wealth of details about the era.

On the gaming side, I've nearly finished the irregular force for Darkest Africa. Hopefully I'll get time to finish them and see them in action.
