Re: Disrepect of flag
I'm with David......I think we're letting 21st century PC get in the way of historical accuracy. The socks should be no more offensive to a "southern" troop as wearing a U.S. belt buckle upside down was to a northern soldier. If we all practiced 21st century love and political correctness in our impressions, we wouldn't have much to reenact, would we?
Should we reenact "the way it was" or the way we'd have liked it to be.
Southerners were seen as "rebels", something to be squashed and rubbed out for the good of the Union. Hence, I suppose, those socks.
My only gripe is they didn't have "tube" socks back then. I hate those "crew" length one's. They make ya look like a geek!!
