A Civil War Homecoming at Fort Snelling

(Cross-posted at Midwest Urban Sketchers) 

This weekend the Minnesota Historical Society staged "A Civil War Homecoming", re-enacting the return of soldiers to Fort Snelling in 1865. This event is part of MNHS's Sesquicentennial commemoration. I'm crazy about sketching people in period costumes, so I was there on Saturday and Sunday. Roberta was there on Sunday and did some nice sketches.
