Battle of Townsends Plantation
This event has been hosted by Clay Townsend for almost 2 decades in Central Florida, northwest of Orlando. This event was the first reenactment I photographed and was the genesis of this entire website. From 2005 to 2010 I traveled up and down the east coast photographing about 100 reenactments in 10 different states. There will always be fond memories of all the places, sponsors and wonderful reenactors I met in my travels. But this event more than the rest will forever have a special place in my heart. It was my first!
The movies presented on this website are usually 5 min or less and were shot with an older digital camera for your enjoyment. They are most often clips from the battle reenactment. To see all my video's go to the Movies page. I commonly use Background music from purchased 97th Regimental String Band CD's or selections downloaded from Incompetech.
