About this Item

112 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. UNITED STATES CIVIL WAR. At hundreds of events held year-round across the American South, thousands of individuals spend their time, energy, and money recreating the battles of the Civil War. The number of participants involved ranges from tens to tens of thousands; those among them span the spectrum from casual spectators to amateur historians who seek to immerse themselves in the experience of living and fighting in the 1860s - from the cuisine to the very stitches in their uniforms. With Whistling Dixie, photographer Anderson Scott captures these latter-day Confederates at a series of reenactments in the years leading up to the 2011 sesquintennial of the Civil War. Always maintaining the perspective of a keen and sometimes ambivalent observer, Scott, in his photographs, conveys the earnestness and enthusiasm of this subculture whille exposing its idiosyncrasies and contradictions. Scott's photographs span the southern countryside, documenting reenactments in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, and the Carolinas as well as living histories and Confederate Memorial Days. An essay by Scott describing experience at a reenactment of the Battle of Selma and a cultural essay by J. Mills Thornton, professor emeritus at the University of Michigan, provide context for the photographs and the historical precedent of their subjects. Anderson Scott is a photographer from Atlanta, Georgia. (Key Words: Dixie, American South, United States Civil War, Anderson Scott, Civil War Battles). Bookseller Inventory # 80272X1

About this title

Synopsis:

At hundreds of events held year-round across the American South, thousands of individuals spend their time, energy, and money recreating the battles of the Civil War. The number of participants involved ranges from tens to tens of thousands; those among them span the spectrum from casual spectators to amateur historians who seek to immerse themselves in the experience of living and fighting in the 1860s - from the cuisine to the very stitches in their uniforms. With "Whistling Dixie", photographer Anderson Scott captures these latter-day Confederates at a series of reenactments in the years leading up to the 2011 sesquicentennial of the Civil War. Always maintaining the perspective of a keen and sometimes ambivalent observer, Scott, in his photographs, conveys the earnestness and enthusiasm of this subculture while exposing its idiosyncrasies and contradictions. Scott's photographs span the southern countryside, documenting reenactments in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida, and the Carolinas as well as living histories and Confederate Memorial Days. An essay by Scott describing his experience at a reenactment of the Battle of Selma, and a cultural essay by J. Mills Thornton, professor emeritus at the University of Michigan, provide context for the photographs and the historical precedent of their subjects.

Review:

"Anderson Scott repeatedly demonstrates that he knows more than what the script offers, and he provides insight to the viewer on a much larger scale than just what the events suggest. The authority of the photographer's vision - his personal point of view - convince us that he got it right." (Mike Smith, author of You're Not from Around Here: Photographs of East Tennessee)"
