pics as promised - pt 1

This was a volunteer rifle regiment. They were able to fire the rifles at a rate of about 4 times a minute. Well, all except the second guy from the left. His rifle just made a tiny 'pop' each time. At the end they attached their bayonets and charged (the crowd surrended without resistance).



This was very very loud!

hehe.

There's a house down the street a bit from Chickie's child care that he calls a castle (big with turret-y looking things on it) and he's said before that he's going to buy it when he grows up.
