Bentonville Battle Reenactment
Posted By: Joe_M, 06-11-2015, 08:59 AM

Here is a slideshow of just photographs I took of the Reenactors at the 150th Bentonville Battle Civil War Reenactment. This battle was significant in that it was the last battle between Union General William T. Sherman and Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston. This was the last major battle of the American Civil War. This will also be the last event for many of the reenactors and that's why I made a special effort to photograph as many as I could. There were many I didn't photograph. The photos were taken on March 21, 2015.

There is one picture in the slideshow that wasn't taken at Bentonville. I took the picture of the cannon at the Averasboro Battlefield a few miles away.

I used a Pentax K-5 II S and a Sigma 17-50 F2.8 EX DC OS HSM. I did a quick color grade by processing an image in LR with the look I wanted and making a preset. I then applied the preset to all the images. I had to make some minor adjustments but it worked out pretty well.
