The Salgado family

The Salgado family took a summer vacation to Washington, D.C. recently, taking in all the sights and participating in a Civil War battleground site tour in Virginia. "We happened to stop by in Petersburg, VA on the 149th anniversary of the Battle of the Crater of the American Civil War, part of the siege of Petersburg," said Ruben Salgado. "There was a reenactment of the battle with various era cannons and federal and confederate soldiers partaking in the event. It was real entertaining and educational." Pictured above holding the Patriot is Ruben, Yvonne, Lupe and Alex Salgado with confederate soldiers and a cannon. ********** Published: Aug. 22, 2013 - Volume 12 - Issue 19
