Whoa *MARY BETH*!

Your exceptional photography and processing has produced one heckuvan outstanding historical re-enactment image. It displays such a strong sense of authenticity.

I have just finsihed watching the DVD series of 'The Civil War' and when I view this excellent image I can almost hear the muskets firing, smell the powder and hear the Rebel Yell.

I just looked up 'The Battle of Bushy Run' on Wikipedia and must apologise for my 'Rebel Yell' reference. How about a 'Colonial Yell"? 8-)
