This is a picture of confederate veterans crossing the fields of Gettysburg as they had 50 years earlier in a reenactment of Pickett’s charge.  When they made it to the wall, union veterans were waiting for them with handshakes and hugs.  This picture is interesting in that it was one of the first reenactments and that these men do not seem as somber as you might expecting crossing a field that was once wrought with death but instead are smiling and enjoying themselves.
