The 2011 Reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek
I went to Cedar Creek site two weeks ago to scout out shooting locations and get a first hand look. This reenactment should be first rate. Access is easy from I 81 and the rolling hills make for a great view. No high transmission power lines to wreak havoc on otherwise good photograph.
This will be my first private reenactment that is run by a private foundation. I’m looking forward to attending and posting the shots.
2011 marks the 23rd Anniversary Reenactment of the Battle of Cedar Creek on the original battlefield here in Middletown, Virginia. The fine fall weather and opportunity to reenact on the actual battlefield has made this reenactment a favorite event for both spectators and reenactors alike. Every year, many thousands of infantry, cavalry and artillery reenactors gather to commemorate the last great Civil War battle of the Shenandoah Valley.
The Reenactment is sponsored by the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation, a non-profit 501c(3) organization, with proceeds benefiting the interpretation and preservation of the battlefield and historic Heater House.
Proceeds of the purchase of a print or a download will help this worthy cause. All proceeds from the purchase will go to the Cedar Creek Battlefield Foundation.
