Vista 2009

2009 Vista was another successful event with pleasant weather and plenty of reenactors on the battlefield.

The Richmond Howitzers are preparing to engage the enemy.


And there they are!  What an enticing target.

Lieutenants Parra and Grass discussing the orders of the day.

Col Mann giving directions on the battlefield.

Posing in camp.  They look like they are waiting for the Howitzers' famous mess to open for the midday meal.

Lt. Parra enjoys a quiet moment reading Harper's Weekly.

Lt Grass giving an artillery demonstration to the public.  I reckon their ears are still ringing from the shot.
