This is “The Battle of Frog Town” mock battle by members of the 25th NC Infantry Civil War re-enactors as part of the 5th Annual Franklin Folk Festival in Franklin, NC this past Saturday, the 19th of July.

It was tremendous fun.

This is one of the photos I took of the dastardly Yankee criminals as they attacked the 25th North Carolina Infantry in FrogTown near Franklin, NC on Saturday. I will have a full video and photo report of the battle later this morning.
