Our Battleground State

Does this picture sum up how I felt as I watched the election results last night, well, yea, but in actuality, it is from the Civil War Days celebration at our Park this past weekend.

This re-enactor experienced the wonderful cockle-burrs that cover this area of the Park. Ouch!

Blue State or Red State? Oh, just shoot the gun.

Watch out, the South is about to rise again!

Now, this is a beautiful site.

Little Buckaroo (far left in red) tries to negotiate with a Union soldier.

Littlest Buckaroo had a great time with Scout and her sister, their dad is re-enactor.

Of course I am not happy that McCain did not win the election, but I urge everyone to pray for our new President. God is still on His throne. He is still sovereign. And we need His grace now more than we ever have before.

Love the photos. I believe today's slogan is "The Republican party will rise again!" (Something like that eh?!) Seriously, we are the party who championed ending of slavery. Shame how far distorted history has become eh?!

Looks like everyone had a fun time.

I agree - we need to be in prayer for our nation and our new president.

What great pictures. I wish we could have seen the battle.

I will definitely be praying for our nation and our president.

Yes, we must pray for our country and for our president-elect. We honor the office, even if we didn't get our choice of men.

And may God bless America.

What great pictures! Your sons will remember these first-hand experiences for the rest of their lives. They are actually LIVING history!

You are right ... we must pray for our country AND our new President. (Even if we didn't vote for him.)
