    We attended the Reenactment on May 16, 2015 to honored a cousin wounded in the Battle of Resaca on May 14, 1864. Amazing was the talent and liveliness of the actors and horses which painted a beautiful picture of the Battle Strategy. Thank You to All for your time and effort. Traveled from Tennessee and Maryland.

This ruined the performance and was not called for. The public was devastated. You could not hear anything but the artillery... more
