Fear Not the Explosions, Toledo

(Toledo, OH) Residents of West Toledo, Sylvania, and anyone outside that area with good hearing might be alarmed by loud explosions.

An infantry night fire demonstration by Civil War reenactors started about 9:00 pm. Battle reenactments will take place at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm Sunday as part of a Civil War reenactment at Wildwood Metropark.

Thanks to WUPW for the heads up. I am sure that Toledo Police and 911 are getting a high number of calls wondering if terrorists are attacking Toledo.

We also witnessed the reinactment. It was similar to 'outings to watch the battle' that actually took place during the War. There were even Boy Scouts selling hotdogs and water. One kid yelled, "Ice cold water, help support the troops!"

Heh heh.

Sounds like fun. I have only attended one reenactment in my life.

I wonder if all of the smoke (in the picture) was a "special" charge, for the "effect."
