Only part of the Civil War reenacting is concentrated on the aspect of the military, there are as many civilian re-enactors, such as this young woman, depicting life during that time period as members of the military units.

Image captured at the 2010 Civil War Reenactment held at Fort Stevens Oregon.

My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    A step back in time. Great work Bryan.

  • Yes but hard to capture, every time I tried to photograph the lamb it would run over and start chewing on my shoe laces, sleeves or camera lens. She sure was cute though. Glad you enjoyed my image Gail.

    Beautiful depiction Bryan. Great place to go and take photos. The costumes are wonderful.

  • Thank you Helen. I have been a Civil War re-enactor for a couple of years now…as a photographer I built a wet-plate box camera housing that I put my modern camera in, dress in period clothing and camp using period equipment. It has been great fun and an amazing way to learn about the history of the time by living it for a few days each summer. And when it comes to the clothing some of these people can be quite fanatical as far a authenticity, in the group I’m a member of there has been a year long discussion on wether or not a certain sack coat had actual cuffed sleeves or was it just a sewn section that looked like a cuff! The best part though is talking to the kids (and their parents) that come out to watch us about the history of the time and the way we are living that out.

    What a fun pass time! It’s a great way to teach our younger generations about history since they are so visual!
