Shots from the past

Henrico commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Battle of New Market Heights

More than 1,000 reenactors – and thousands more spectators – filled Runnymede in Varina today for the first day of a two-day commemoration of the Battle of New Market Heights, which took place Sept. 29-30, 1864.

The battle was a significant one because it marked the first time black soldiers had been empowered by the Union to play a significant role, and they responded by helping deliver a victory. Fourteen of the 18 Medals of Honor awarded to black soldiers during the war were given for efforts at New Market Heights.

The battle was another nail in the coffin of the Confederacy, which would surrender the following April to end the war.

Khumba-ya? Not quite

But animated South African film has its moments

You might have seen something called Khumba while clicking through a Redbox recently (or perhaps it was nestled in some hidden corner of a DVD sale shelf). And chances are, you passed it by without much of a thought. Makes sense; that goggle-eyed cartoon zebra on the cover (a zebra that’s dangerously close to becoming Madagascar copyright infringement) doesn’t inspire much confidence.

But when Khumba starts up, it looks nothing like you’d expect. The camera gazes across the savannah and the soundtrack swells with triumphant South African vocals. > Read more.
