Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

In September of 2012, my wife’s family and I went to Hermann, MO, where I saw my first ever Civil War Re-enactment ever. It was a lot of fun, complete with cannons, cavalry, muskets, as well as many artisans showing skills and stories from that time in our nation’s history. For this weekly photo challenge, this photo stood out to me, as a lone southern cavalry charged the oncoming union troops as they were advancing. It was a very sad time in our nation’s history, but one that marked a major turning point towards working towards equality for all. Hopefully, we will not ever repeat this, and continue to strive for equality for all people, no matter their race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, or any difference. For THAT is truly moving forward, and it is our differences that make us all the stronger.

  1. Loved our trip to Hermann, Missouri. Great photograph. Interesting to see, it made you feel as though you were there in the period in which it all took place. Wonderful color in the photograph!
