The men spent the hot day in the wool civil war uniforms, just as was done during the Civil War in Fort Pickens. They said they breathe much better than one would think but......can you imagine the smell after days of wearing this uniform?These two men had lots of information about the Civil War and LOVED to get their pictures taken.
How about hot coffee on a 85 degree day?This is the sign they used to represent them.
I took a picture of their drum. After all, I am a band director. And the guns are neatly stacked in case of an attack. I sure felt safe.
It was a great surprise because we were just taking a quick drive down to the Fort. I did not have my camera with me or a hat......I was just not prepared. (That is why the pictures lack quality.) But what a great Memorial Day activity.
I hope we all had a great Memorial Day Week-end honoring those that have given their lives for our freedom. God Bless America!
