The Last Stand

This is my favorite picture from the Olustee skirmish of 2008. I messed up a corner of the shot and included way too much grass at the bottom--so I cropped it. If the subjects weren't moving so much it would have been easier to isolate one Union squad. But I think it came out pretty well.

If I have my facts right, the actual battle would not have been much fun to film. It took place mostly in what is now the Osceola National Forest. I'm sure the Rebels' knowledge of the woods came in handy.
