The issue here is whether reenacting is over. Yes, I believe that it has lost the enthusiasm among both the participants and the public. It's a matter of demographics. The baby-boomer generation that had so much fascination with this historical epoch in the past is getting older. The Ken Burns series and the movie "Gettysburg" spawned a renewed interest in the Civil War among many of the boomers who were also able to afford the uniform and weapon to become a participant in this endeavor. The youngsters today are as uninterested in participating as they are playing with toy trains which is why the model railroading hobby has so many old-timers in it proportionally than it did 25 years ago. This is so even with the new trains being digitally operated as state of the art to encourage younger people to enter that hobby. Let's face it: there is nothing to make the upcoming generation as potent a force as the boomers to create large-scale reenactments, just in numbers let alone enthusiasm. If 20% of the boomers were interested in reenacting, for example, that's a greater number than 20% of the millennials today. Now assuming that generation outnumbers the boomers as a demographic group at some point, you still have to engender their interest. Do you really believe that many of them have the same emotional response to history that would make them potential recruits? I don't think so. It is a different world today.
