Todays photo comes from the Civil War reenactment that I attended at Old Bedford Village this past weekend. After the battle many of the soldiers lay wounded, dying, or dead on the field. This photo shows a Doctor working hard to help an unlucky solider that was wounded when he was shot through the cheek during the battle.
One of my favorite parts of these reenactments is learning about how things took place, how the soldiers lived, ate, and fought side by side. And this reenactment depicted a great deal of the day-to-day lives of the soldiers before and after the battle, including surgery for the wounded and how they were cared for after surgery.
