GUEST,MV BS: Re-enactors? (75* d) RE: BS: Re-enactors? 01 Nov 00

My husband and I are Civil War reenactors with Missouri Brigade Medical Service, a recreation of a Confederate medical (obviously!) group. We find the living history aspect is fascinating and both enjoy giving presentations to groups of all ages.

Our "specialty" is Civil War dancing (my husband and I used to belong to a CW dance troupe) and we love to teach/demonstrate period dances.

As a dulcimer player, my own particular pleasure is to play tunes of the period and share information about the music and instrument.

My "first person" interpretation is based on a real woman who lived in Missouri and whose home and descendants I've visited. Having had access to letters and personal family anecdotes, etc., I find this a most interesting way of interpreting history.

My husband and I have served as tour guides at a state park in Missouri until we got really busy with reenacting and my current project is "building" a display of herbal medicine illustrating the usage of the times.
