Pipe bomb found at Civil War reenactment; FBI involved (photos)


Written by DML
On Saturday evening I received a phone call from a US Marine veteran who I met in 2015.  My cell reception was poor, but I could hear the sense of urgency in Manny Vega’s voice.

Realizing we had a bad connection, Vega hung up and began texting me photos from Frederick County, Virginia. Along with the photos was a message:  “The cops found a pipe bomb at a Civil War reenactment.”

Vega was correct, authorities found a pipe bomb on the grounds of the Cedar Creek & Belle Grove National Park during the annual reenactment.   The FBI is now investigating both the bomb and the warning note that came in days earlier.

According to local news station, WUSA9, there was a bomb threat issued 3 days before the pipe bomb was actually found.  WUSA9 reports, “On Wednesday, a letter threatened harm to the participants and spectators. Both the threat and device were  investigated by the FBI and Frederick County Sheriff’s Department. ”

According to Vega, people were kept out of the camp grounds shown in the picture below while authorities dealt with the explosive devise. Buses were called in to shuttle people away from the area.  “People are angry,” wrote Vega.

The bomb did not go off, and no injuries were reported, but the 153rd anniversary at Cedar Creek was spoiled.

It is amazing how violent the left can be.  Lets hope the FBI gets to the bottom of things quickly, and brings the pipe bomb maker to justice.
