A VMI Weekend of Tradition
This past weekend, I had the unique opportunity to shoot for Virginia Military Institute. It marked the completion of the first week of class, which is a big deal for the first years, or Rats, as they’re called. At the end of this matriculation week, there’s the first football game of the season, the Rats take an oath pledging to serve VMI well as a cadet, then they reenact the Battle of New Market in New Market, VA. I had the honor of shooting it all. We’ll start with tailgating and football since it’s pretty self explanatory.
The New Market Battle was interesting, as well. I won’t go into details about it here. I’ll let you click this link to learn more.
