At the last minute I decided to go Friday to the re-enactment. It was brutally hot out,but I enjoyed it. Again at the last moment, I went back for the big finale Sunday. Not having media access,I had to commit very early on to one spot to shoot from if I wanted anything of the action close up. I ended up with a front row seat for Pickett`s charge on what would be Little Round Top at the real battlefield. Unfortunately,as far back as the border of the field was,you couldn`t see very much of the close-in fighting at the fence. I enjoy taking portraits and photos in the camps,and there are numerous chances to do that.This was probably the biggest re-enactment ever,but even though next year will be smaller with less re-enactors there,I want to go back.

Confederate Cavalry approach the battlefield on July 5th.

In the immortal words of Darth Vader........ Impressive, most impressive!

All joking aside, Tony, your photos are most impressive.

Thanks for sharing.
