Until last weekend.

The Second New Jersey Brigade took over Historic Speedwell in Morristown on Saturday and Sunday and engaged some Rebel re-enactors in a skirmish that looked all too real, according to these photos by MG contributor Jeff Sovelove.

The soldiers certainly seemed authentic…but we’re glad their ammunition was not.
