Oddly, enough, through 25 years of reenacting, I held many ranks... except that one, which I only wore for about 5 minutes.

Long story, better over beer.

Lots of ACW. (including in England and Czech Republic-- see, better over beer!).

Once or twice Rev War and, believe it or not, ECW (in Virginia).

I've only watched a couple small WW2 reenactments.

It's such a great way to immerse oneself in history.

I enjoyed my years of WW2 reenacting, at times we did maneuvers with judges to assess their outcomes (as contested field exercises). Some night actions in the driving rain. Lots of time some of the flashier units that came to events were never to be found after the public demonstrations were over......they were already at the local bars having that beer.

You really ranged for your events Kevin, all the way to Europe!

Yeah, it amazed me that Europeans- with centuries more history-- find our ACW so interesting.

I asked a lot and kept getting similar answers, along the lines of "so much of our history is knights and nobles fighting each other and the common man would get stepped on by both sides, with no real advantage or change in their lives regardless of "which side" won. Your Civil War was about the common man, fighting for a better life."

Big similarity over there-- like here, they have lots more CS than US.
Still more 'romantic' and all that.

I tell you, though, doing a ceremony at the town hall in Bolton, England, which was built by unemployed cotton workers (who were essentially working for food) but who still wanted their government to NOT support the Confederacy and slavery, will give a powerful (if not romantic) impression.

But we're going way off SMG here, so let's remove this to a private email.
Though if Michael B. wants to join us, I know he's also a reenactor.
