I’m getting ready to leave for the past – 1864 to be exact as I’m a Civil War Re-enactor. I have been since I was 16 and a friend came into class, handed me a permission slip and told me to have my mother sign it and that on Saturday I was going with her to Gettysburg to get something to wear. I had found a fascination in the American Civil War when I was 13 and going out to do this peaked my interest in a way the same way that dressing up for the Renaissance Faire or Wild West Re-enacting (which I also occasionally do) did. History fascinated me and I wanted to know every little detail from all sides of the story and every single person. I didn’t ask any questions. I was just excited. That’s how I came to join the Chesapeake Signal Detachment with the Provisional Army of the Confederate States (PACS).
A Semester in Egypt
Well, here we go again folks! I’ve been in Cairo, Egypt for almost a week now. It’s been an interesting experience so far. I’m afraid that the cars will kill me, but I’m starting to get the hang of it. I’ll be sure to post to my travel blog, which many people followed last semester, http://assseenbybecky.blogspot.com, and I will post some new photography as the semester goes on. It will be awesome, I just know it!
So, that’s about all I have to say at the moment. More to come in the next semester!
