For this event we portrayed delegates in the field during the Bermuda Hundred Campaign. The event as a whole was very different. The set-up had visitors walk through the lines. Starting behind the Union Lines at the USCC & USSC set-up through the woods, to the Federal line, then to the Confederate works. The fighting was happening in "real time" meaning that the earthworks were being constructed as the days went on, with fighting happening throughout the day.

Although there was a lot of down time we did get to spend some time with friends who enjoy this crazy hobby with us. It was nice to sit under the shade of the arbor to get to know the other "delegates". One of the best moments to come from the weekend, was this awesome image that was struck of all of us. We used two different field images of the original USCC to create ours.

After two days of wet, muddy, tick-infested woods I would say the event is one to remember. I met some new people, got to see old friends, and once again learned some lessons along the way.
