Ermagherd!

So I'm over here by Pittsburgh having just photographed a very successful wedding for a lovely couple near to my heart, and they've just surprised me with the off-the-cuff idea of us all driving off to Gettysburgh, spending the night in the Lincoln House and doing a battlefield walkabout tomorrow. It's not the first time my friend Rachel's been there, she knows the place fairly well now, and I am incredibly excited at this sudden 'hell yeah let's do it!' proposal. If we can get everything lined up we'll be driving off in a couple of hours.

Gettysburg is very, very, much on my bucket list - the opportunity of seeing the Devil's Den, the sight of the first encounter between Buford and the Confederates, site of Pickett's Charge.... ooooh.

Kern, you've been there before, right? ;)

Drink at O'Rourkes.

Also, hmm.. if the Regimental Quartermaster has a pair of Union enlisted trousers (no stripes) at 36" on the rack, send me a text or PM...

Hopefully this link will work.
It’s from the BBC archive covering reenactment in 1970

Thanks for that. Soskan is my organisation although I've been away from it a lot in recent years. Amazing to watch that and see how far the group has come (I actually know the chap they interview).

Perhaps I'll get out again next year.

BBC: Russia professor admits murder after woman's arms found in bag

Quote:
Prof Sokolov reportedly told police that he killed his lover during an argument and then sawed off her head, arms and legs.

He is said to have planned to get rid of the body before publicly taking his own life dressed as Napoleon.


WTF? Also: farb.

Really interesting piece in the Guardian about a large re-renactment of the 1811 Louisainan slave rebellion. Excellent photos too.
