Civil War Re-enactment
On the banks of the Missouri River, over 300 soldiers portrayed battle scenes from the Civil War for a full crowd Sunday afternoon. Of course, I had to explain that the guns and cannons were real, but only loaded with powder and not shot. Someone "died" right behind a row of parked minivans! We took the Jungbluth boys along with us -- and managed to find silverware engraved with a "B" for Ben and Brooks as a souvenir. Polar Bear also purchased a cap gun for himself and Owen with his own money. Dorito bought kettle corn and proceeded to eat most of it as we snaked through traffic trying to leave the scene. Teenage boys are always thinking of food.
