Fire on the Genesee 2016!

Last weekend we attended an event titled "Fire on the Genesee" which is an encampment of Civil War re-enactors.  This is the second year we've attended this event and we continue to enjoy going to it, and my son enjoys participating in it with the Engineers.  Both Union and Confederate camps we open to the public and a battle was held on both Saturday and Sunday.  Good times with good folks.  

Here's some images from the event.  More images can be found in the "Fire on the Genesee 2016" gallery.
