Stranger 2 - Jimmy

May 7, 2011
Upon first arrival to the Civil War Encampment, this gentleman was the first I spoke to. His name is Jimmy. Jimmy also travels around teaching us great American History. Today I learned what the soldiers brought to their campsite, what kind of different foods they ate and how a tent was pitched. From looking at the plain white sheet, didn't look like rocket science.

Anyway, after a brief history lesson on living standards during and between battles, I ask Jimmy if he would be so kind to let me snap of photo of him. He didn't mind at all.

Thanks Jimmy on soldier life during the war. Now I know I don't have to pitch a tent while figuring out if what I'm eating, is going to do me more harm than good. I truly hope you enjoy this photo. Cheers!
