Battle of Picacho Peak
Since moving to Arizona I searched for reenactments to capture. This is the first. Reenactors come from several surrounding states to reenact in this state park which is part of, or close to, the actual battle gound. The actual skirmish was a small action compared to the large-scale eastern battles but this particular one has its own state park conducive to a reenactment. It was a warm day for me, I had recently transplanted myself from Florida to Arizona ... and it had been several years since I had been able to capture my favorite subject; reenactors. It was wonderful! The park superintendant was on hand along with rangers brought in from other parks. Along with other staff, they handled the event professionally. I will attend this event again and encourage you to do so.
