Why yes, I am a big nerd.

Our little town had its Civil War Days event this weekend, and Chris and I got to go for a little bit today. I was a history major in college, and although I didn't have to declare a concentration, I did focus a lot of my energy on the Civil War. It was my favorite era to learn about, and I got really into the fervor that surrounds it, and so I started going to reenactments. This is only the third one I've been to, but it was a lot of fun! These pictures are sorta in random order, but I'm sure you'll get the point!

Car ride. Holy freckles!


This is a terrible photo of me, and I'm sorry my bra is showing (!!!)
but I was REALLY excited about funnel cake.

so was Chris.

Southern milita.

Chris kept jumping at the sound of the cannons blasting and it made me giggle.

Union cavalry.

Medical demonstration.


PS: I edited all these photos using Photoshop actions, just like Leigh-Ann taught me (lol, not really), and with the help of the lovely and talented Elycia!


  1. Omg I love demonstrations like this! lol I wish I lived in a smaller town.


  2. That looks like so much fun! And nerdiness is entirely okay. Heck, I encourage it! :)

    This is going to sound funny, but I've never had funnel cake, although I've had fried dough. Haha.

  3. Ahh, funnel cake. My very favorite authentic civil war food. ;)

    I used to go to civil war reenactments, they were awesome.

  4. I loooove the Civil War! Looks like you had fun. I want to go to a reenactment so bad.
