Taken at the American Civil War Weekend at the Avoncroft Museum in Bromsgrove. He is dressed as a sniper in a Union army regiment, and sported a very nice example of a Sharps rifle
which he loaded and fired but the 'bang' was so loud that even though I was ready for it, the camera shook and ruined the shots.Blush
