    Yes, thank you! I never heard about the Marine reenactment either- will go Google instead of pulling someone's sleeve here. Sounds awfully interesting, whoa! I'm guessing an awful lot of Marines emerged from that with a better understanding of their own ancestors, of course in the 20's a few may have been alive. Isn't that kind of incredible to think about?

    Correct. There was a different colored flag for each of the brigade commanders.

    Actually there might have been more people coming across yesterday than in the original charge.

    Thanks for posting! I wanted to go this week, but hate large crowds...just have to live vicariously through others this time.
    Am going in August though.
