NILES - Sometimes the smoke that escapes a shooting cannon will create a perfect ring that expands and floats upwards heeding to the wind. It is truly a sight to behold.

The Confederacy and Union soldiers battled this weekend behind Brandywine Community Schools, to the entertainment of visitors.

Residents from Brandywine and surrounding communities were able to witness cannonball smoke rings and a full scale re-enactment of a Civil War battle on the Lowe family property Saturday and Sunday.

This event is reported as the 2nd annual re-enactment, which indicates we will see this event next year somewhere near Niles, MI.
