Tampa Bay Battle Re-enactment

A re-enactment group held a battle at our nearby Veterans Park. We like to take our dog, Woogie, there because it's usually quiet. Today, the black powder muskets and canons were booming! Woogs was quivering in the van while we watched awhile.

In 1863, there was a battle in the Tampa Bay with the Union Army fighting to keep the Confederates from sailing to Cuba to trade cattle, etc. for gold.

Love the ladies' hats!
