Forty-one (!) years ago in September, 1977 the reenactment group I belonged to, then known as Douglas' Texas Battery, attended a Labor Day weekend event at Jefferson Barracks County Park, Missouri, near St. Louis. Above, Yours Truly is center in the group in our camp there. Way Back Then school didn't even start until AFTER the Labor Day holiday, so that weekend was always a big one for us. Currently some school systems have come up with the radical and novel idea of waiting until after Labor Day to begin classes because of this year's unseasonable heat in the Northeast - here in Texas it's just more of the same old thing!

Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementos, or memorabilia, please share them with us here in this thread!
