Antietam National Battlefield, MD (6-27-09) : The Battle of Antietam marked the single bloodiest day in American history.  Some 23,110 men were killed or wounded in action here on September 17, 1862.  The fighting here was a result of Robert E. Lee's first attempt at taking the war north and the Union's attempt, under George McLellan, to stop him.  The battlefield preserves such famous landmarks as the Dunker Church, the infamous Cornfield, the Sunken (or Bloody) Lane, and Burnside's (Lower) Bridge.

This album follows the course of the battle as told along the self-guided auto tour that circles the park.  Where I have been able to find pictures from the time of the battle I have included links to accompany my shots and descriptions...

Andersonville National Historic Site & Cemetery, GA (2-23-07) : Andersonville was perhaps the most notorious prison camp of the Civil War. Though it was only operational for 14 months over 13,000 prisoners died here due to malnutrition, exposure, and murder. Of all the Union Prisoner of War deaths, Andersonville accounted for nearly half half.  This was a very moving place to visit, and very different from other Civil War sites...

Huntington Beach 2014 : Huntington Beach Civil War reenactment is always a fun event. Despite the heat and humidity, the 2nd U.S. Cavalry had a great weekend. It was my first weekend staying in the tent with my husband. I survived no shower for two days, but it was worth it. I enjoyed the experience and look forward to doing it again. I've posted images of Confederate as well as Union soldiers and Cavalry troopers. The ladies tea put on by our 2nd U.S. Cavalry is always popular. Check out the images of some of the ladies at the tea. There are children, too, playing soldier and having a ball. Please enjoy and remember that digital downloads are always available to purchase at a very reasonable $2.99. I hope to see you at the next event!

Civil War Days Yuma 2011 : It was a gorgeous morning as my husband and I drove out to the United States Quartermaster Depot in Yuma, Arizona, for Civil War Days. We are part of the 2nd U.S. Cavalry and thoroughly enjoy the Civil War reenacting events our group participates in. This event is particularly interesting because the place where it is held is a historic site. A lot of the original buildings are still there and are now maintained and run by the city of Yuma which is doing a great job restoring and preserving the Quartermaster Depot. This gallery contains the images I took over the course of the weekend. Enjoy!

Bill Peck as Lincoln Retirement : Bill Peck is the best Lincoln reenactor that I have had the priviledge of knowing. In addition to looking very much like our 16th president, Bill is just the sweetest man you will ever meet. He is a man of honor, good character, and deep faith. It was with heavy hearts that the crowd leaned in to listen to his words as he spoke the Gettysburg address for the last time. Illness is taking its toll and making the speech was an effort. I don't believe there was a dry eye in the crowd. The City of Huntington Beach honored Bill with a special citation and our 2nd U.S. Cavalry Unit presented him with a special gift. He is and always will be a member of our Unit. It has been a joy to know and photograph Bill for the past five years and I wish him God's richest blessings as he lives out the rest of his life with his lovely wife, Debra. Bill Peck will be greatly missed. Thank you, Bill, for all you gave to so many. We truly love you!
