The Skirmish

General Astride

Every few years Sturbridge Village has a large battle re-creation that mizes Civil War re-enactors as well as Colonial ones. This particular day the family and I went to see a battle between the former with cannons and all the accouterments.

I brought the cameras along as usual and was able to catch some good scenes on digital as well as 35mm. The battle lasted an hour or so and I really wished I could have just set up a studio of sorts to shoot some of these guys portraits...

I may get my chance this year though.. A new re-enactment is coming this summer.
