VIDEO: Camp Ford hosts Civil War reenactment

Fasten your seat belts, time travelers. We're going all the way back to the 1860s, because that's where some East Texas elementary students went to witness a fictional Civil War era battle. KLTV 7 photojournalist David Gober shows you what might have happened if the union had tried to rescue prisoners at Camp Ford.

Camp Ford is named for John Salmon 'Rip' Ford, who enlisted and trained soldiers for the Confederacy.
