Book review

"In his artful, atmospheric, and often inspirational images of Civil War reenactments, Kris Kristoffersen has captured not only the humble moments of camp and field, but also the grandiose and panoramic scale of nineteenth century warfare--something that the photographers of the Civil War era were themselves unable to accomplish.

Talented as they were, Brady, Gardner, O'Sullivan, Gibson, Russell, and their fellow chroniclers were prevented--by the technical limitations and necessarily long exposure times of their bulky equipment--from recording movement. There are countless portraits of combatants, views of soldiers in camp, images of ravaged towns and scarred landscapes, and most shocking of all, the torn and bloated bodies of the fallen. But it was impossible for those mid-nineteenth-century photographers to document the marching columns, roiling smoke, and surging tides of fighting men in battle.

Thanks to the fervent commitment of the reenactors, Kristofferson has been able to capture at least an approximation of the terrible splendor of those battlefields--of serried ranks silhouetted against the vast, indifferent sky, advancing to death with an ardor born of belief."

--from the Introduction by Brian C. Pohanka
