Youthful Warriors

Here's another shot from the American Civil War reenactment I saw last Saturday. Called the Skirmish at Jeffersonville, the event replayed an action between the Union forces under the command of General William Woods Averell and a Confederate force that was unnamed in the documentation I saw. The union force was on a raid to Saltville, Virginia with the objective of disrupting the supply of salt from the mines in the area. One union soldier was killed in the skirmish.

 

This is better on black or in the light box. :D
