I met so many wonderful folks in Fort Worth and I am very grateful to the Texas Civil War Museum for sponsoring me to sign books. Reenactors from four different time periods and wars were represented in the morning parade –Mexican War, Civil War, Indian Wars, and Spanish-American War. I marched and proudly carried the flag of the Sons of Erin, the 10th Tennessee Infantry. Below is the flag I carried, and you can find information on the 10th Tennessee Infantry (then and their reenacting unit today) here:

Then there were the saloon girls . . .
Then, next thing I know, I’m in the caboose!
