Exclamation Civil War Reenactment @ Powerland This Weekend

http://powerlandheritagepark.com/htm..._schedule.html

I saw this a few years ago at a different location, but this is happening this year at Powerland just west of Brooks. Same place where they do the annual Steam-Up. Mock battles at 11AM and 3PM plus a lot of civil war era history. A civilian camp and a military camp.

And, the Powerland museums will be open as well as the Vintage Trailers Show.

Muzzleloading and More is also setting up shop there over the holiday weekend so if you need BP stuff look for their tent.

Took the wife to when they were out at Willamette Mission Park; quite a show with the cannons, calvary and infantry going at it. The two sides were on opposite rises with a lowland between where the battle took place. Powerland is more flat so I'll see how that compares. The 'actors' camp there for the duration and have to be 'in character' when the public is admitted. Lot of demonstrations and participants are more than willing to have a conversation.

Silverton does a medieval festival in August, I think. Jousting, sword fighting and all sorts of stuff with many participants in costume. Even have a tent set up for the queen with her royal guards. You can pick up a suit of armor or armament of the day as well as numerous handicrafts typical of that era.

Man, I love that historical stuff. Be there or stay stuck in the 21st Century.

Cool stuff. Didn't know Silvertown had that event. I used to hang there quite often.
Sure would like to procure an old claymore.
But wifey probably wouldn't let me hang it over the farplace.
Not even allowed to have my fishing poles n reels in sight.

It's up north of Silverton on 214? Out in the country with a wooded hillside where the event takes place. They also do a western days at the same place. When I see it coming up, I'll post it here in LIG.

Somewhere before you get to Mt Angel I spose.
Ex's folks used to live in South Water Street. But never heard of them talking about it.
Quit hanging out there in the late 80's or early 90's.
Her dad was into that kinda stuff, cuz he was a ww2 Army Air Corps Lt.
He used to own the foundry there in Silvertown, and cast lots of old looking stuff.
Like mini cannons etc.
He made me a beautimus set of solid bronze bookends of old square rigged ships.

It was worth going but not as good a site as when I saw it at the Willamette Mission park. I think that's where it was. Saw both battles today and each side won one. The antique, or just plain old, trailers were fun to see and I did take a ride on the mini railroad. Didn't get over to the sawmill until they had already shut down and was cleaning it up. Oh well, won't be long before the Steam UP.
