I’ll have to admit, I’ve never really been into history.  But I sure do find it fascinating there are still so many reenactments of various battles all throughout this area.  I’m actually determined to attend some of the larger ones later this year – mainly for the awesome photographic opportunities (but perhaps I’ll learn something new along the way).  The oldest one in the nation is actually this weekend at New Market Battlefield in Virginia.

Anyway, since I was in Leesburg today I figured I’d take a little side trip to Ball’s Bluff to get the Civil War “juices’ flowing.
