Andersonville stages Civil War re-enactment





Only in Andersonville can one munch on a funnel cake while in the company of authentic Johnny Reb and Billy Yank lookalikes.
In a town known worldwide as the home of a Confederate prison whose very name wrought fear and trepidation to Union ranks, history buffs gathered Saturday to celebrate both the blue and the gray.

Harry Ross and Dennis Crenshaw are definitely two admirers of history.

Ross, who Saturday was wearing the gray uniform and gold stars of famed Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, managed to talk his boss into letting him enjoy the weekend's events because, to him, reenactments and fairs like the one in Andersonville Saturday "are just too much fun."

"It's good to get away and spend some time out here," Ross said.
