Our crew, 22 Va Vol., began CW reenacting some twenty five years ago. We often brought the banjos and bluegrass to the campfire nightlife. Authenitcity is often reserved for military matters. We decided to change that. We now do the "Ethiopian Serenaders" instead. http://www.monumental.com/sanfords/reconst.html Besides we're too old and fat now to run around a confederate "militubbies." Living History is more of an education for the participant. On the field amid the smoke and noise one acheives insights not often recognized by the one viewing from the ivory tower. Not to mention what I have learned about American Music!
