This week's Throwback Thursday returns to school ca. 1987 for a visit to discuss the Civil War with members of a history class taught by the lady at right above and below whose name I've unfortunately forgotten. We're listening to my friend Ed Owens, one of several members of the North Texas Reenactment Society who attended wearing uniforms of both sides and various branches of service; he's a private of Confederate artillery, while I'm a generic company-grade officer. Other members were Confederate infantry and Union officer, infantry, and artillery. Educational activities like this were only another aspect of reenacting we participated in on a regular basis back in the day.
Anyone else having (preferably) old Civil War-related photos, mementoes, or memorabilia from reenactments, living history or other events or vacation or other travel that they would like to share with us is welcome and encouraged to do so in this weekly thread!
