Tintype Photography & Civil War Re-enactment

  • Aired: 05/15/2014

  • Rating: NR
Tintype portraits, popular throughout the 1860s & 1870s, have a unique place in photographic history. The team discovers a civil war re-enactment in Vista, the perfect avenue to highlight this special art form and for Tim to try his hand at them. Tim takes his place amongst the soldiers to help the canon unit and he meets plenty of colorful characters along the way in this Emmy-nominated series.
