Over the weekend, I attended the Lemon Bay Festival Cracker Fair. It’s a celebration of Englewood Florida’s past, featuring tours and a series of informative Englewood history programs. Part of the fair was a 4 week long photography contest which I had participated in. I went to the festival to receive my award certificates having placed 3-4 weeks with various photographs.
I came across these gentlemen who were dressed in confederate attire. They weren’t true “reenactment” believers but nevertheless, were extremely patriotic and very knowledgeable about that period of history. I thought this to be a wonderful opportunity to satisfy my blog post for “patriotism”.
