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!

Moorpark 2013 : Moorpark, the largest Civil War reenacting event in Southern California, is always a thriller. The setting on a working farm with the hills surrounding the battlefield is a great location. Dozens of horses and hundreds of Civil War reenactors, history buffs, and battle enthusiasts gather for the annual event rain or shine. This year it was sunny and hot! Unlike other Civil War reenacting events, the one thing that makes this one really special is the night battle. If you're lucky enough to catch the guns exploding or the cannons expoding at just the right time, you will feel the excitement of capturing a great image. I enjoy capturing the faces of the reenactors more than anything else, especially when they don't know they're being photographed. For me it is just a much more natural expression than the ones I get when I ask them to pose for me, although, I do that too! Second favorite thing I love to shoot at these events is the horses. Maybe it's because my grandfather raised thoroughbred horses and was an incredible jockey in Europe, but I just adore the horses. This year did not disappoint and the horses were thrilling. It was a long, tiring, dusty, and dirty weekend for my husband who is in the 2nd U.S. Cavalry, but he wouldn't have it any other way. I enjoy the weekend also and look forward to next year and the excitement that ensues on the Moorpark battlefield! I hope you enjoy the gallery of images and please feel free to leave a comment for any of the photos you like. I appreciate the feedback. Enjoy!
