9 Back In History: The Battle Of Alma

Back In History: The Battle Of Alma

Soldiers eat bacon, gingerbread and honey.

Anyone can take part in the battle. The camp is traditionally divided into two parts: one part for Russian troops and the other one – for their enemies. The atmosphere reminds the one of the 19th century.

    “wounded soldiers” ???

    I always wonder,
    What make ‘wounded’ soldiers on reenactment?

    They have the union flag upside down.

    Splendid stuff – do humans also re-enact times of peace, or are they just not dynamic enough.

    Be careful with that black-powder, sparks and dry grass peeps – accidents can and do happen! Glad all the blood was fake.

    Remembering our heritage is extremely important. I would like to see this event. We have civil war re-enactments that explore the lifestyle of the period (1860’s), much more than just the battles.

    The black haired soldier in the second picture can come to Waterloo in June to play the role of Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Photo guy should get a digital back to stick on that large format camera. (That’s if they’ve improved since I used one, it was not portable when I had one.) Then he could do some really cool stuff!

    The pic 17 with a guy in red coat has the title “the French army”. As far as I know, the redcoats were English; the French army wore blue coats with red pants and red hat. The only French regiment wearing red coats were the Swiss Guards, which had been dissolved in 1830.
