We had a fun day today at the Civil War re-enactment being held at Fort Tejon, 30 minutes south of Bakersfield. Several Corvettes of Bakersfield members made a last minute run through the Grapevine to the Fort established in the mid 1800s. As soon as we got out of our cars we were greeted by a tremendous explosion of a cannon booming in the distance. As we walked in, we were greeted by people dressed as pioneers and soldiers from the old days. Ask any one of them a question about the history and they would give you a detailed description of how life was in those old days and what parts they played. It was a very educational and fun trip and the weather couldn’t have been any better. It was a super nice 70° in the mountains and the green grass was gorgeous under the giant oak trees. I encourage anybody who is a history buff or whose kids are learning about the Civil War to attend one of these events. We had a great time.
