    Cool, I don't know what the 6th Ohio did during the war, so I might start researching about that regiment.

    I use to back in the early 80,s. 23rd Virginia, out of Richmond, Va. loved it, but then a recession hit and could not afford to do it anymore. it was great, everyone talked in first person when the crowd was around. Friday and Saturday night you might have a bluegrass band playing, keg of beer. and then the blue and grey balls (dancing)

    I don't reenact per se but I practice the photography directly from the period. Lots of chemicals, lots of glass and tin plates, lots of fun. Some example pieces can be found here. I'm looking to get out next year in period clothing and equipment for the historical events across the UK.
