Pictures are starting to come in from the Shenandoah 1864 event:

This my unit, which had the largest turnout of any Federal group there:

There were a surprising number of mounted soldiers considering the size of the event:

Many of the participants camped "campaign" style.

Nice photos!
Yes, there were a lot of good photos, more than I could post. In fact they set up an entire Facebook page just for photos from the event. This was organized by a campaigner and the focus was on authenticity in camps and appearance.

Here's some coverage by the local newspaper:

About 30 or so of us drove / flew up from Texas to attend the event. It was a lot of fun and the terrain was physically challenging, to say the least. I'm attaching a 'tin type' of some us relaxing prior to Sunday's fight. We portrayed the 6th Alabama.

I cannot claim ownership of these, but they were posted in the group Facebook page. My impression is 1st Vermont Heavy Artillery. My Company was selected men from the VI Corps to act as light infantry and 2nd Company was from the Vermont Brigade. So I am a Heavy Artillery turned Infantry turned Sharpshooter.
