A few years ago we went to one of the reenactments that are held every year in July to commemorate the Gettysburg Battle.
We thought it would be a portion of the battle and that would be it. But instead we found a tent city of soldiers allowing us to see what life was like for the Civil War soldier. There were also demonstrations of artillery fire, living history of civilian life along with entertainment of camp music. We thought we would be back to the hotel by mid afternoon and did not get back until dusk.
It was an interesting experience to learn not only about the Union and Confederate soldiers but to learn about life back in the mid 1800’s and what life was like for both the soldier and civilian.
