Confederate Col. Joe Grosson of Brentwood, Tenn., teaches his "soldiers" how to properly handle their muskets while addressing the importance of order in the military during the Civil War, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 in Raymond, Miss. As part of a four-day observance of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Raymond, reenactors spent the first two days teaching school children about the local historical involvement in the conflict, about the life led by a regular soldier, about firing a cannon, and provided examples of surviving in the caves that dotted the hills around Vicksburg during the siege.
