Another Gettysburg Casualty?

A Civil War reenactor was shot this past weekend in Gettysburg. . .seriously.
Click here to see for yourself.

The victim was a 17 year old portraying a solider in a Mississippi regiment. Let's be thankful that it was not more serious.

wow...is that something that happens occasionally? i had no idea that re-enacting with rifles carries the potential for danger like this.

also...enjoying the book!! just wish i had the regiment info. etc. with me...of my union ancestor who fought with PA unit. i'll definitely be checking this when i return to CT.

Ahhhhh, careless stupidity from one member (who I bet hasn't been reenacting long at all) doesn't mean the other thousands of us are idiots. This individual should be banned from the hobby forever.
