Last weekend was War Days in Old Clinton, Georgia. It is located about 1/2 mile from our lodging so Vol Fan and I decided to check things out.
There was an encampment by the 16th Georgia, CSA and 3rd Wisconsin, USA. Both are Civil War re-enactor groups. We were amazed at the hard work and expense that these people put into their hobby. The home in the background of this photograph was built circa 1825.
[Sidebar: The Battle of Peachtree Creek took place just 11 days prior to this battle. Peachtree Creek is significant to our family history. Vol Fan's third great-grandfather, Hazel Jones (52nd Georgia CSA, Company I) was taken captive by the Union army during this battle. He had also been captured at Vicksburg but gained his freedom by swearing his allegiance to the Union and vowing to fight no more. I think he might have been lying :/ Since this was his second time being captured, he was sent to Camp Douglas, a prison camp in Chicago, where he died from small pox.]
Back to the war.
There were generals....
