A Confederate rifleman discharges a round toward advancing Union troops on Saturday during the re-enactment of the Civil War Battle of Island No. 10 at Reelfoot Lake State Park.

State Rep. Steve McDaniel of Parkers Crossroads steadies the wheel of a cannon as Mark Oliver of Princeton, Ky., at right, commands firing. Douglas Burkeen of Henderson, Tenn. leans away with a hand over his ear. The re-enactment is scheduled again at 1 p.m. Sunday at the park north of Tiptonville.
