Civil War Reenactments: Anderson Scott's Photos In 'Whistling Dixie'

Anderson Scott is a photographer based in Atlanta who has spent a lot of time around Confederate Civil War Reenactments, and a book of his images, Whistling Dixie ($60, University of Chicago Press), has just been published.

While others have previously captured this unusual pastime, we've never seen such a series on this theme quite so surreal, poignant and often sharply satirical while never losing an affectionate eye for his morally complicated subject.

Check out some of Scott's images below:
