Today's feature photo was at the Whitley County Historical Museum's Civil War Camp. In all the years I have worked here, I have never covered anything at this museum. I am really pleased that I was able to cover their camp.

It had been raining all day, but had just stopped raining when I showed up. The campers were heading outside for drill practice. Later they danced the Virginia reel. They were having fun so I tried to show this in the photo.
