Hi Aram,

I'm a little surprised to find that folks in Yakima feel strongly enough 
to do a civil war reenactment, but it looks like they do it well.  You 
got some very impressive "period" images.  Those gun stacks reminded me 
of a time in my childhood in the 1930s, living in a farmhouse in 
Mississippi, when, as kids will do, I crawled around beneath the house 
and found one of those musket bayonets beneath the house.  Rusted as it 
was after 70 years, it was still recognizable.
