Thunder in the Woods – – BIG THUNDER

This past weekend in Corydon, Iowa spectators witnessed living history come alive as men made their way through the woods to stage a Civil War reenactment.  They portrayed Federal and Confederate troops during the Vicksburg campaign.  As the infantry units moved about we periodically heard thunder coming from atop the hill – BIG THUNDER!

A number of artillery pieces were stationed to provide artillery support for the infantry.  When they fired, shock waves surged through the trees and echoed across the nearby lake.  The terrain was perfect for reverberating sound waves.  These photos give you some idea of the fire shooting from the barrel.
