This post is dealing with the battle itself. The Battle was supposed to be the Battle of Stones River but I don't think it really matters because this look very similar to another re-enactment I went to a few years ago.
The battle was fought December 31st, 1862 to January 2nd, 1863. The battle was technically a draw but the Union was able to repulse two Confederate attacks and cause the Confederates to withdraw so it was technically a Union victory.
While it was cool doing these pictures, there were many difficulties. I kind of wish they would have set up the infantry lines closer to the crowd but I would imagine there are some safety issues involved with that. While I kind of whish I had brough my bigger lens, I'm not sure I would gotten better pictures. But I still had fun.
