Old Bedford Village

This past weekend I experienced my first Civil War Reenactment, thanks to Zach, I had a lot of fun, which actually surprised me, sorry Zach. There weren't spectators so I was able to run around the battle field with my present day clothes on, there was no way I would have been able to do it in a hoop skirt. I am working on this for my portfolio since the paper here has covered many times and they aren't too interested in it. Although I might be able talk them into it since I will be in with a unit, like an embedded reporter but much safer since it's not live fire.
I shot a lot of the Pennsylvania 45th and these are a few of the first ones I have gone through, enjoy.

Major General J.L. Chamberlain, aka Doug

Crazy man with guns, Mike aka Hellfire, half the unit is named Mike they all have nicknames

One of my goals for the weekend was to get a smoke ring from one of the three cannons there, I didn't get it.

Beautiful sunset over camp, luckily we stayed a building rather than a tent, it rained.
