A Momentary Retreat on the Battlefield at Petersburg

I had the privilege of witnessing a reenactment of the US Civil War battle at Petersburg today at Prado Regional Park. In this shot, the Union troops are making a hasty retreat. They quickly formed up again and return fire on the advancing Confederate soldiers with a Gatlin gun. As was the case in the past, they won the battle again today.

 

I'm sunburned and tired and will visit your photo streams first thing in am.
