This past weekend, Dudeboy and I joined the rest of the 9th Ky at the Battle of Triune Civil War Living History and Battle Reenactment.  It was a perfect weekend . . . unlike "Triphoon" last year!  And, as you can see in the above image, we had group photo taken by a certain well known collodion photographer (who wasn't exactly pleased with the results, but we sure were).

Trip to Indy, Part 3

This is the last entry for our trip to Indianapolis.  We did pretty much what we set out to do, and wore our butts out doing it, but we don't know relaxing vacations . . .   

 The Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Monument (and Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum).

This big-honkin' monument was "erected to honor Hoosiers who were veterans of the American Revolution, territorial conflicts that partially led up to the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the US Civil War, and the Spanish American War."

Detailing on one of the light-posts . . . I am not sure what the entwined bears have to do with anything, but I thought they were neat.

 Dudeboy atop the 284' (or 331 steps!) monument with the state capitol off in the distance.

Dudeboy probably would have enjoyed the museum much more at a younger age, but they did have a pretty good dinosaur exhibit.  Here he is touching a fossil that is in the process of being prepared for display.
