I dragged out my Chickamauga video the other day. This is a documentary that somebody made using footage shot at the big reenactment back in '99. I hadn't really sat down and watched it before (my previous viewing cosisted of much fast-forwarding and cursing because I wasn't in it) I'll have to say, it's not bad. I've actually seen much much worse. I hate to admit it, but it's better than the one they show at the Battlefield (I AM in that one)

I think the reason I wasn't in it was because I was a wee bit tooooo conspicuous. I think I was the only idiot there with a white horse (can you say big honkin' TARGET?). I told the battalion commander (that I was baby-sitting) "Sir, you do realize that if they had live ammunition, we'd be dead?"
