Great series of images . I love living history events like this . There is so much  to learn from the reenactors that history books do not cover.

Thanks Russell!
And, it's a visual feast!
My favorite way to photograph people! Environmental portraiture!
I found a Pentax K1000 that seems to function without battery. I will check it over today to make sure everything is functioning. If it is in working order-wondering if a Pentax would work for you?
I certainly don't need it, I have several! I'll even pay to ship.

Email your shipping address to me.
My email is my name at the top of my blogsite all run together (firstmiddlelast) @gmail.com
I will send it to you along with a surprise that I think will inspire you to take your photography to the level you are aiming for!
