I've just returned from two and a half days of Rangering at Manassas for their sesquicentennial observance.
"Hot" was the most often heard word. 103 actual degrees and a heat index of 112-115! It was really sapping to work in such heat for such an extended period of time.
Despite the exhaustion, I'm very happy to have been able to participate in this personal and professional milestone.
I was expecting to have the opportunity to photograph a wide variety of uniforms at this observance of that very early battle. I wasn't disappointed. What a range of color and cut among those earliest volunteer regiments.
