THE CIVIL WAR REENACTORS !!

"REENACTING IS NOT A GLORIFICATION OF WAR

RATHER A REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE THAT DIED FOR OUR FREEDOMS"

This following paragraph describes more fully what Civil War Reenacting is all about....
"Creed of Living History"

"We are people to whom the past is forever speaking. We listen to it because we cannot help ourselves, for the past speaks to us with many voices. Far out of that dark nowhere which is the time before we were born, men who were flesh of our flesh and bone of our bone went through fire and storm to break a path to the future. We are part of the future they died for; they are part of the past that brought the future. What they did--the lives they lived, the sacrifices they made, the stories they told and the songs they sang and, finally, the deaths they died--make up a part of our own experience. We cannot cut ourselves off from it. It is as real to us as something that happened last week. It is a basic part of our heritage as Americans".

-Bruce Catton

It is even more than that Civil War Reenacting is a hobby, activity, and a way of life. It is when you enter a camp and you smell the camp fires burning, oh what a sweet odor that is. It is conversation and laughter in the air, men and women sharing their knowlege of history with others, you may even see a man by a cannon anxiously waiting for people to share his knowledge with.

The people that you meet here are down-to-earth individuals that really care what happens to you, in fact, it is an extended family. Oh, we do have our disagreements, in families you do too, but all in all when you join you will find it is the greatest group around.
