Re-enacting Civil War battles in authentic costumes has become a growing hobby among the general population today.
Popular with novice and historian alike, the human drama of the Civil War is brought to life through study, folk skills and stories, and re-living the events of a hundred and thirty years ago.
Photographers David and Joan Hagan portray this drama through their poignant pictures taken during re-enacted battles.
With a little imagination you become part of the action, hear the gunfire and shouting, and smell the smoke through their brilliant close-up photography.
Authentic clothing, implements, food and environment are strickly reproduced.
These pictures transport you to another time and place where daily life was disrupted and each person struggled with life-threatening conditions.
