This past weekend I was invited by the 10th Iowa (Adjunct) to the 150th Battle of Bentonville reenactment, to come along and photograph their unit. I have to say that it was an incredible experience with a truly impressive group of reenactors. Their attention to the detail in their period impressions was incredible. It was an honor and a pleasure to have the opportunity to photograph such a fine group of reenactors.
Photographs from the reenactment can be seen here:

I also have a short video of the 10th Iowa marching into the reenactment of Saturday morning. They camped off site on Friday night and on Saturday morning they marched over 8 miles. They even did a little foraging for food along the way. If you look close you can see a few chickens. Be patient with the video, it takes about 12 seconds before it starts.

For some reason, this image below is one of my favorite. A soldiers feet take them everywhere they need to go.
