U.S. Civil War Reenactment

From its vantage point overlooking the Golden Gate, Fort Point protected San Francisco harbor from Confederate & foreign attack during & after the U.S. Civil War.

 

The Confederate raider CSS Shenandoah planned to attack San Francisco, but on the way to the harbor the captain learned that the war was over; it was August 1865.

I've been hearing from Astrid what the German soldiers did as they left Holland once the war was over. Sore losers! sad I sure love how authentic these soldiers look, John. It's amazing and you've paid them excellent tribute.
John Eagle: Ginnie, Thanks. These reenactors make for excellent models. Yes, war sucks winning or losing, coming or going.
Very beautiful portrait, taken at the right time smile
John Eagle: Thanks, kinda like sitting around waiting for a fish to jump. smile

Wouldn't it have made great history if he first captured SF before learning the war is over? grin
John Eagle: Yeah, that would have been cool twist. Then what? Would they have burned S.F, to the ground, or declared an independent state, or maybe ceceded to Mexico or Canada?
