We had a wonderful time in Key West at the Living history event at Fort Zachary Taylor, named after the U.S. President in 1850.  The fort was occupied by the Federal forces during the Civil War and was used mainly to block any Confederate ships from coming through with supplies for the army. The city of Key West was under Confederate rule during that time. It’s an interesting place to visit as they have all the big old canons and old buildings.  We felt like we stepped back in time as we dressed in our Civil War outfits and mingled with the other  re-enactment groups.  They also staged a sea battle with 3 schooners running a blockade.  It was a lot of fun.  Later we walked around town. I loved the beautiful water and colorful streets of Key West. Here are my favorite shots of that weekend.
