Civil War Reenactment Shooting Demo
These are more images of our wonderful trip to Bardstown, Kentucky, last August.
We had arrived early at the Civil War Museum and the encampment beside it where the actors for the battle scheduled later in the day were living. We were not only invited in to meet them and see how they lived, they gave us a private shooting demonstration.
Of course, there are blanks in these great old rifles.
We were shown how the rifles were gun and shot.
It was so realistic that sometimes they didn't fire, sometimes they did.
The children were also proficient at shooting as children were back in the days of the Civil War.
These are the most generous, kind people. We so enjoyed our visit here.
Even more images to come. I hope you are enjoying our visit to Bardstown.
