    2nd U.S. Cavalry

    Small detail of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry set up a bivouac in town today. They were dismounted, but had everything else they needed including a brass Mountain Howitzer, 12 Pounder. Quartermaster, Provost Martial, Commissary. They will fire the 12 pounder across the river this evening for Retreat. A few snapshots here.

    Wow those Pentagon budget cuts are steep, they are raiding the old warehouses!

    Is the reenactment camp for anything specific (battle, holiday etc) or just impromptu? I always think that stuff is neat. Thanks for posting the photos!

    They are part of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry Association and yes they are reenactors. They do have a mounted contingent but it wouldn't fit in with this particular weekend activities. The Association now extends their activities up from the post Civil Was, Indian Wars, period to include the Pancho Villa expedition. They end the 2nd cavalry period at 1916. The Provost Martial was a Captain and was costumed in the 1916 gear of the day. I'll see about more pictures tomorrow. I got a few more snapshots today.
