I pass by that area all the time. It's a beautiful area, just got to watch out for animals crossing the road. I don't think it was a wise decision to do a Confederate Wedding, most people in this area hate Confederates. I bet you made the DHS List

Most people don't read their Bibles, exercise daily, go to church regularly, or be 100% accurate on their tax returns or resumes, either. I hate the sheeple mentality.

Sorry! No one from the Union was interested in renewing their vows this year. Maybe it was because there was only one Union couple there and that was the Pastor and his wife. The bulk of the Confederate reenactors are from the Binghamton area. DHS?
