Not to start a row. But....for you numbers count. Others, obviously by your post, don't care about numbers, ergo, the federals had some where else to go that more suited what they wanted out of their hobby. In plane words, folks have stopped buying a product they don't like. And, I think the GAC/BGA Gettysburg numbers will bear that out. We'll see who buys which product. And, we'll see what's more important, where you spend your money on your hobby; or, "numbers" at an event. And, I think one might conclude, since the GAC has done the same old same old for years on end, there is obviously a demand for a different product. "Better," should be reserved until mid July, 2013 when all of the G-150's are over.

I picked one on the living histories, it's what I want out of my hobby. And, I'm quite certain, the re-'nactor police aren't going to put me in re-'nacter jail because of what I've chosen. Not to increase "numbers," at an event.

"Yet, despite these small numbers, Kernstown was one of the most decisive engagements of the war. The Confederates, Under Jackson, though soundly defeated, ultimately lost the most. As historian Bruce Catton observed: ‘The victory meant nothing at all, whereas the mere fact that the battle had been fought meant a great deal.’ Indeed, the ramifications of this odd little affair reached all the way to President Lincoln."
