Late summer/fall reenactments

Dear Readers,  There have been a few more reenactments this summer I'd like to catch up on! However, I didn't get a lot of photos at each one, so I'm posting about several reenactments at once, this time.
Zoar There was a reenactment at Zoar village in September this year. This reenactment happens every other year, although in the future it may not: From what I've heard, the levy will no longer be maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, so the historical village may be/get flooded in the future.

I'm taking fewer and fewer pictures per reenactment, since camera looks a little out of place around my neck... but I'll try to still have a few pictures of each event for documentation purposes!
