The 20th Regiment Texas Volunteers, a Confederate re-enactment group, were in Paris, Saturday, August 20th. Gosh, I felt so sorry for them in their wool uniforms and long gingham dresses. But, they put on a really nice demonstration of what it must have been like during the Civil War years. To the left are a few of the pictures I took. It was so very hot and humid, I didn't stay too very long. I scooted off to the 21st century and air conditioning.
