While some people sing along with Julie Andrews and declare that their favorite things are raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, my favorite things run more along the lines of learning new things, sharing that information with other people, organizing events and making memories. At a Civil War Reenactment, I get to do all of these things. Last weekend, family and friends met up at the Moorpark Reenactment to share food, fellowship and our love of history with others who attended the event. My husband and his fellow musicians who are in the Liberty Hill Band (yes, those same wonderful guys who play for our Civil War Balls) played their music near the battle field while the ladies of the Civilian Camp had a lovely tea party. The Saturday evening dance is one of the highlights of the event for the re-enactors. I always learn a new dance or two to bring home and share with my Civil War Ball group at home. Friends, music, history and dance… these are a few of my favorite things.
