WEll what i see with reenacting is it being divided into twp halves (mainstreamers and campaigners) i think it is rediculous that we would ruin such a hobby that all of us would agree that we are into it to help keep civil war history alive.
Anyone that does not see this split just look at this years gettysburg. now we are having two reenactments one in june and one in july. Im sorry but what was the problem with just having one in july. I will not attend the one in june because i view it as trying to destroy the reenactment in july. I know we get treated like crap at Gettysburg (AKA no rides for reenactors to the sutlers, expensive ice ETC.....) but i overlook this because i am there to help people understand the civil war. This nonsense with two reenactments about the same battle is stupid and if both sides of reenacting could come togehter this hobby will live on but if we have people that view them selves as a BETTER REENACTORS (more historically correct) that want to make seperate events this hobby will crash and burn.
