Brendon Booth – Confederate Private Soldier
The best impersonation of a simple Confederate soldier is done by Brandon Booth. He interperts a South Carolina Infantryman with honesty and a passion. He carries in everything on his back, sets up, and then carries everything out. Food, utensils, all are researched to have been what was used by the ordinary Confederate soldier would carry. This is what “hard-core” means.

I set next to this valley man for several days at Gburg. Thought his impression was one of the beat ever. I have told several folks what a strange thing it is that he and I neather cared for military ways, and now spend many hours living and studying this war. Ha, jokes on us!
Having seen Brandon Booth twice at the 150th Reenactment of Gettysburg; once with two high school friends from way back and then with my oldest son, and three grandson I have to complement Brandon. Each time we stopped at his bivouac he did an outstanding job explaining what a Confederate solider did, what equipment he had and food he carried. What life was like on a deployment and in battle. There is no acting in his presence becomes a real Confederate soldier.
If you are at event at which Brandon Booth is present find him and talk with him!
