The Daily Pulse:

Rare film footage of the Battle of Knoxville

Or something like it, as one last shot at our Sesquicentennial cover subject.

Courtesy of the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound, from their Weinstein Family Collection, we offer this rare film of the first (?) re-enactment of the Battle of Fort Sanders, 50 years ago during the Civil War Centennial, at recently opened Fort Dickerson.

We can't help but notice some contrasts. You be the judge of who was more authentic, the 1963 re-enactors or those of 2013.
