Taken August 2005 during the 225th anniversary of the Battle of Camden. A special treat for we reenactors to have a mock battle on the actual battlefield site.
After the event, I was shown this picture (as this was taken by my parents who tagged along since I was out on the field at many of the events, practically dying from the heat). I was nearly floor and nearly paled. Being a major researcher of the Major-General de Kalb, and reading about the accounts of that fateful morning... this is EXACTLY how it looked! Cannon fire had caused the haze before the close range combat began.
This has got to be one of my very favorite images of all time! It perfectly captures pre-battle and an actually moment in history.
Again, taken at the battlefield site just north of Camden, South Carolina.
