The 2021 reenactment of the Race to the Dan at the Old Stone House in Salisbury, North Carolina was a rainy affair, at least when I was there on Saturday. Wet weather is the enemy of black powder muskets and canons, so the early battle of the day was canceled and reenactors did their best to stay dry through the morning. We got a break in the weather in the early afternoon, though, so the small crowd got to take in at least one skirmish. The skies opened again as soon as they finished!
Cloudy skies are – for the most part – a photographer’s dream. So while I came home wet, I was happy to be there and to have a chance to make a few images. Some of my favorites are below.
If you are a reenactor and see your picture here, I would be happy to send you a digital copy of your photo(s), for your own personal use or for the promotion of your unit, free of charge.
