First Call Civil War Expo with CW Living History Reenactment

The First Call Civil War Expo at the Carroll County Farm Museum in Westminster Maryland was this past weekend. I was assigned to capture the essence of the event, and what a blast it was! It was a gorgeous day to be on the farm museum grounds, and my first exciting stop was at the campsite of photographer J. C Milleker Jr. There he was practicing the photographic craft of the wet plate collodion, and I was delighted to oversee the process from beginning to end.

I also enjoyed a stop at another campsite to chat with and watch Reb Staub as he shared the craft of blacksmithing.

Then it was time for the soldiers to do their thing. The reenactment was very exciting and great for all ages to see. I look forward to next year!
