A Glimpse through the Window of Time

I glanced out the window of the Dunkar Church and was transported back in time. A small Confederate formation stood by their encampment, the same ground occupied by Stonewall Jackson’s troops in 1862.

This humble church, the sanctuary of worship of a small German Baptist sect became the objective of the Union Army 1st Corps commanded by General Hooker on the morning of the 17th, the bloodiest day in American History.

Great picture! It looks so real when these guys do their stuff. You can see their passion in what they do.

I love the way you composed this shot. It is hauntingly beautiful.

Wonderful photo. It would be fun to photoshop this one to look like an old tintype.

We used to take our daughters to watch the reenactments at Kennessaw Mountain when we lived near there. I never tired of reading about it and also watching the men doing that.
