We were passing through Funkstown, Maryland on July 21, 2012, and came across a full scale Civil War Battle in progress in the middle of downtown!
I've never attended anything like this and thought this would be a good time to take in a little history of the area. Below are several pictures from the event as well as a link to a site with much more information on this battle.
|These guys (and girls) really got into their costumes and maintained an 1860's feel.|
|It's amazing to see the way battles were fought 150 years ago. These guys held up white flags and all fighting stopped. They then met in the middle of the street and had a pow-wow.|
|In the end, someone's got to lose......|
