Ready, aim ... Fire!

In the first photo, fire streaming from the rifles of Civil War soldiers represented only a small portion of the Civil War encampment activities held March 2 at the historic train depot near downtown Newnan where living historians played the part of soldiers and civilians at the day-long event. The encampment was sponsored by the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society. Photo/Ben Nelms.

Photo 2 — Old-fashioned cooking

One of the often overlooked aspects of life in a Civil War camp was the role of women. Exemplifying that role at the March 2 encampment at the historic train depot near downtown Newnan were Jessica Gordy stirring the cook pot and Kelly Whitfield, right rear, cutting cabbage that will become a part of the meal for the soldiers participating in the event sponsored by the Newnan-Coweta Historical Society.
