I spent this past Friday and Saturday out at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. They were hosting a special event over the weekend to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. I started out Friday morning with a minute by minute real time walk through of the Federal assault at Cheatham’s Hill. Ranger Jim Ogden, led our group of about 100 people through the walk. He is a great speaker with a very vast knowledge of the Civil War. After the walk, I photographed some reenactors at Cheatham’s Hill and then went to the 24 Gun Battery for the Union Artillery demonstration. It was cool to see the batteries being used in the same place they were set up 150 years ago. I also photographed the Federal encampment, complete with a blacksmith, at that location. The next day I went to the Visitors Center and photographed the activities there. Made some portraits of reenactors and photographed the “Fashion Show” that displayed what civilians of different classes would have worn. I also went to the top of the mountain to photograph the Confederate Battery that was doing demonstrations. Saturday night I went to the memorial service at the Illinois Monument. A very moving ceremony with 3400 luminaries in the field to represent the soldiers the fell here in battle.
