The 2008 Battle of Rivers Bridge Re-Enactment

CROWD OF OBSERVERS OF THE 2008 REENACTMENT OF THE BATTLE OF RIVERS BRIDGE ENJOY THE BEST WEATHER IN MANY YEARS OF THE ANNUAL GATHERING IN EARLY FEBRUARY IN THE LOWCOUNTRY OF SOUTH CAROLINA AS THE SMOKE RISES FROM THE CANNON FIRE UPON THE UNION TROOPS IN THE SWAMPS OF THE SALKEHATCHIE RIVER NEAR EHRHARDT IN BAMBERG COUNTY.






CONFEDERATE ARTILARY ON THE HIGHGROUND TAKES AIM ON THE UNION ENEMY IN THE SWAMPS OF THE SALKEHATCHIE RIVER IN THE LOWCOUNTRY OF BAMBERG COUNTY SOUTH CAROLINA AT THE RE-ENACTMENT OF THE BATTLE OF RIVERS BRIDGE IN EARLY FEBRUARY OF 2008 TO COMMERATE THE BATTLE WHICH TOOK PLACE IN EARLY FEBRUARY OF 1865 NEAR THE END OF THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES.



THE CAVALRY HORSES EYEBALL ONE ANOTHER, AS DO THEIR CONFEDERATE CAVALRY RIDERS!!!



BEFORE THE TROOPS TAKE TO THE BATTLEFIELDS OF WAR, THERE IS THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM, THE TIME OF REFLECTING ON THE PREVIOUS BATTLES AND THE TIME OF REFRESHMENT OF BODY AND SPIRIT WITH REST AND NOURISHMENT AROUND THE EVER PRESENT CAMPFIRES AND TENTSITES.



THE BEAUTY OF THE HORSES AND THE PAGENTRY OF THE RIDERS OF THE CAVALRY IS ALWAYS A FAVORITE WITH THE ATTENDEES WHO NOT ONLY LEARN THE TRUTHS OF SOUTHERN HISTORY, BUT ALSO ENJOY THE MANY OFFERINGS AT THE VENDORS OF CONFEDERATE MEMORABILIA AND DOWN HOME SOUTHERN FOODS AND DRINKS AT THE ANNUAL RE-ENACTMENTS OF THE BATTLE OF RIVERS BRIDGE IN BAMBERG COUNTY OF THE LOWCOUNTRY OF SOUTH CAROLINA.



THE TWO REBELS -- CORNBREAD AND "ROBBIE" LOADHOLDT RENEW THEIR BOND AS COMPATRIOTS
ANNUALLY AT THE BATTLE OF RIVERS BRIDGE RE-ENACTMENT.


On February 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, 2008 -- Once again, there was a re-enactment of the
Battle of Rivers Bridge in the South Carolina Lowcountry, on the banks of the Salkehatchie River Swamp between the Confederate Army in defense of its beloved Southern Homeland, against the treacherous invaders from the Union, who desired to deny the Southerners their rightful INDEPENDENCE.
THE RESULT OF THE BATTLE WAS THE SAME THIS YEAR, AS IT WAS IN 1865, AND AS IT HAS BEEN AT ALL OF THE RE-ENACTMENTS WITCH BEGAN IN 1965.
But, at the closing of all of these RE-ENACTMENTS, there is witnessed by the many in the crowd, a spirit of fellowship and respect for our re-united Republic under the colors of Old Glory, and she continues to wave so beautifully in the Southern Sunshine.
THE WEATHER IN THE 2008 RE-ENACTMENT WAS THE BEST EVER. A VERY GOOD SIGN OF AN EVEN
BRIGHTER FUTURE FOR AMERICA'S FUTURE. -- eddie
