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.
