I guess the "civil" wars not over...

STANARDSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- A judge in Virginia says it's a draw between two Union and Confederate Civil War re-enactors who got into a tussle on the battlefield.

A judge found each man not guilty of assault on Wednesday after they pressed charges against each other over the dispute last September.

The men were playing cavalry officers in a re-enactment of the Battle of Stanardsville. The Confederate re-enactor claims his Union counterpart knocked his hat off.

The Confederate was accused of responding by firing a blank round from his revolver. There was no bullet, but the powder charge injured the Union re-enactor.

Both men were on horseback and both said their actions were accidental. The judge concluded he could not find either man guilty ''beyond a reasonable doubt.''

Good to see the courts across the sea are being put to good use :eek: - Confederate man definitely wins 'girliest' claim, he really took this guy to court for knocking his hat off?

Is that some gross, irrepairable insult to the Southern man? - why not just get his slave to fetch it:eek::P?
