Are you going to take any pics during the reenactment? Love this. Great in B&W!

I just watched the Ken Burns Civil War, last episode, tonight. This could
easily have been one of the scenes. The b&w sepia is perfect.

A wonderful monochrome Michael.
Most fitting for this scene

This is a fine shot with nothing to suggest that it is not authentic. I'm sure you will have a marvelous time at the re-enactment and will have lots to share.

I really think the sepia treatment works on this photo. It gives the old timey feel to the photo that the subject deserves. Well done.
