" Civil War Re-enactors "

This is my first 16 page book , in order to complete this I went to 7 different locations and shot in various conditions to add close to 8000 images , a special thanks & a Big Happy Birthday to my brother Mike who used his talent to compile and prepare this for press, with out his help this would not have been possible ., as I am still learning with his assitence how to use the CS4 & will probibly be pulling my hair out for the next 2 or 3 years as I learn it ..., I am very pleased with final result and these will be available on my web site after January 20th , I value your ideas and comments on this book.!

It was B. Shaw, I believe, that said; ''History teaches one thing, that we have learned nothing''...I hope that he was wrong. Very good work Jeffrey.

Dara P. , January 10, 2009; 07:45 A.M.

Hi Jeffrey nice work

It is a very interesting and comprehensive work and its well shot and layed out...wish you lots of success with publishing it...United States vs. Confederate States and "Making the Rebel Stand" interesting stuff... The shots look like movie stills from a epic war movie...just one point I noticed that the rifleman on page 7 is wearing sun glasses that did'nt exist in the 1860s. In any case nice work and informative stuff makes me go back and think about some of the many causes of the American Civil War...abolition of slavery (just and noble), states rights (politics and constitution) ,control of the industrial and banking north over the wealth and resources of the rural south (economics, hegemony,greed) . A war that pitted brother against brother and father against son...it is supposed to be one of the worst Civil Wars in history. The wounds and divisions ran so deep (especially in the south) that they were visible even until the 1950s and 1960s...Regards

Jeff, the book seems to deliver the "being there" experience very well. From the pages shown I can let my imagination run, and "experience" what it must have been like those 200+ years ago on the battlefields, just like a real enactment...
