What can I say -- this is terrific, Mary Beth. I do not know how you were able to position yourself for so many perfect shots. Even if you have done a lot of post-processing, the raw material is so obviously there. This is a superb series.

Thank you all so very much for your kind comments throughout this series. The re-enactment lasted 45 minutes, so you can imagine the staging and action at Old Bedford Village.
