How does one choose between a football game and a war reenactment to photograph? There’s no competition there, but I chose both.  According to the website, the Battle of Mississinewa Battle of 1812 in Marion, Ind. is the largest War of 1812 reenactment in The United States.  This fact combined with knowing people would be in period costume, living in a camp, and living (mostly) only with things available around 1812, I couldn’t resist checking it out. I wasn’t disappointed. , I enjoyed shooting every minute of people cooking by fire, the canons in the battle, and the little kids in period costume. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite photos from the battle grounds and the camps.
