Welcome to my website! For years I’ve been trying to combine 2 of my interests-photography and studying the American Revolution. By photographing American Revolution reenactments I now can combine both interests.

Since I now live in the Philadelphia area I’m centrally located to photograph many of the reenactments in the Delaware Valley region. My future goal is to photograph every major American Revolution reenactment.

Plus, it's fun and all reenactors want to share stories; they're storytellers!

NEXT EVENT:


"Happened upon this site while looking up Oriskany battle. This is truly impressive work! I have been a newspaper photographer in Florida for 32 years. In my travels I have shot many Civil War, Seminole War, and Revolutionary era events, (most all are pre-digital age) and your stuff makes me want to toss out my old slide pages and start all over. Great detail shots,timing, and more. P.S. A few months back I read that Ben Affleck MAY direct a movie about Bunker Hill. If so, you should apply for the publicity stills job! Who would have a better portfolio than this?"

We both sat on the front lines of the Battle of Monmouth on Saturday, you with camera in hand and me with camcorder in hand. I have just started to view your pictures and the are a pleasure to browse through. I just finished editing two videos from the day's events. They are posted to my YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqKS5mlOlwG-IAAHsKFW1-g?view_as=subscriber It is labeled as the Chris Lauterbach Channel. It was a great day and event to capture images.

Thank you for these beautiful photos. I am researching my Loyalist family history, and these photos make the story of the revolution and all of the soldiers and natives experiences come to life.

I truly enjoyed your photos. Brandywine Battlefield State Park, Chadds Ford, PA is a central repository for the historic and significant event of the Revolutionary War on September 11, 1777. I enjoy history and as I am now retired, I volunteer at the park. I constantly learn new information and meet people for various parts of the U.S. I previously lived in the Boston, MA area for nearly 30 years (Chadds Ford PA area we were please to find the historic connection. Please visit the Brandywine Battlefield Park web site and attend event there.
Chris de France, PLS.
Ken Bohrer -

I want to thank you for sharing these beautiful photographs with the American Revolutionary War community. These are exceptional pieces. Great to see the reenactments and specifically the period of the Revolution. I am a retired Land Surveyor in South Arkansas on the Ouachita River.

I have family that lived and fought in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. John Henry DeFrance enlisted December 7, 1789, in Captain Nicholas Van Ransselaer's Company, First Battalion New York Forces, commanded by Colonel Goose Van Schaick. This company was also designated at various times as Captain Robert McKeens' and as Company Number 7. He was stationed at Fort Schuyler until some time in the later part of 1780, when he was transferred to Captain Benjamin Hicks' Company. This company was also designated as Third Company.

John Henry DeFrance’s two oldest sons both fought in the Revolution. John and James DeFrance were in the 6th Pennsylvania Militia Regiment. John was 15 years old when ha crossed the Delaware River with General Washington to take the Hessians at Trenton. He was at Princeton just days later and they both were committed until the end of the war.

My gggggrandmother, Elizabeth Boone DeFrance was Jonh Henry Defrance wife. Elizabeth's brother was Captain Hawkins Boone (12th PA Regiment of the Continental Army) who was killed at the Battle of Fort Freeland (near present day Milton/Turbotville, PA) on 7/28/1779.
Captain Hawkins Boone was the first of four land surveyor in my family line.

Captain Hawkins Boone was killed and scalped by the British and the six nations.
