GETTYSBURG, PA - JULY 02: Christian Jaussi, 28, from Ft. Worth, Texas checks the original 1863 image before a friend photographs him re-enacting the famous 'The Home of a Rebel Sharpshooter' photo on July 2, 2013 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Some tourists visiting the historic site choose to recreate the macabre scene, as part of their battlefield experience. The original photo featured a dead Confederate soldier in a photo taken by Alexander Gardner on July 5, 1863. The photograph was later discovered to be staged, the body of the 'sharpshooter' having been brought from another place on the battlefield for the photograph and the gun not a sharp's rifle.
