PHOTOS: Spotsylvania Civil War Living History Weekend
Tom Rothenberg, a contributing photographer at The Free Lance-Star, worked like the devil to document the Spotsylvania Civil War Re-enactment and Living History Weekend on Saturday.
He and his Photo Department colleagues built this slideshow of select images from the hundreds that he shot during the annual event, which continued Sunday, drawing thousands of spectators from across Central Virginia– and as far away (at least) as California.
Rothenberg covered both the re-enactment, which portrayed the nearby Battle of Harris Farm, life in the Union and Confederate camps, and civilian aspects of the weekend.
Whether you were there or not, I commend taking a few minutes to peruse and enjoy Tom’s fine work. There was more to see and experience than any one person could take in, but he did a great job of capturing some high moments at this engaging and interesting set of public programs.
Some of Rothenberg’s photos appear on his own blog, here.
