Photo of the Day: Re-enactor

Long-time re-enactor Tony Thomson cools off in the shade during B*ATL, an event commemorating the 147th anniversary of the Battle of Atlanta. His wife Darlene was there dressed in Civil War era garb as well, along with his son and a couple of his grandchildren. Darlene says that the reenactments they often take part in are sometimes misconstrued as celebrating a dark era of America's history. Her hope is that the reenactments will unite people as they learn about their shared history.
