This week's Throwback Thursday returns to ca. 1990 and the annual Christmas Cotillion of the North Texas Reenactment Society. I'm pretty sure the setting for this photo is the grand staircase of Fort Worth's Thistle Hill, a late Victorian mansion near downtown built by a local cattle baron. As explained previously, our group began as a Confederate artillery unit and gradually morphed into a Union artillery unit before coming to rest about this time as a Union infantry company - hence the many different impressions! For some reason Yours Truly is missing from the group photo, but included are, bottom row, left-to-right: Sgt. Jim Lackey of Wichita Falls, Lt. Bruce Winders of Arlington, First Sgt. Lewis Iselin of Wichita Falls, Corp. Alan Huffines, Maj. Michael Hubbard of Dallas, and Lt. Jim Marrs of FW; others I recognize in rows behind include Corp. John Gattis, Capt. Glen Smith and his son Colin, Drummer William Iselin, and Glen Hargis.
Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementoes, or memorabilia from reenactments, living history or other events or vacation or other travel they would like to share with us is welcome and encouraged to post them in this weekly thread!
