JUGM here and on behalf of our family I want to say "Happy Birthday America"! We Hope you are enjoying the day with family and friends and celebrating our countries birthday. I was watching the mini series "Sons of Liberty" and thought to myself "Good God, what it must have been like to live back then" .
The following is for our good friend Harry at Self Sufficient Mountain Living. My nephew in law and niece live in Pennsylvania and he is a medic with the Army Reserves. Every year his unit schedules their July weekend drill to coincide with the Gettysburg Reenactment. They volunteer to serve the medical needs of visitors and all the reenactors. This year my niece went along for the fun and sent some great pics to me. She also took some videos but has not got those to me yet, when she does I will do another post because they are pretty awesome.
They let my Nephew in Law fire a mortar
Everyone stayed in tents
The medical staff got to meet Mr. Lincoln
I did ask about protesters and was told they were about 10 miles away and did not interfere with any of the weekends activities. I was told the issue became comical amongst everyone involved in the reenactment. Kind of like a "We dare them to show up" mentality.
Hope you all enjoyed the pics. God willing and the creeks don't rise I would really love to attend one in the future.
Have a safe 4th of July!!
