There has been a lot of discussion in the media about reenacting/living history and as we start celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War/ War between the States; I expect we will hear more about reenacting in the media. Living History Podcast recently discussed this issue and their listener’s perspective on what the general public perceives what is reenacting. Sadly I’ve worked with a few nonprofit organizations who perceived that reenacting is a bunch of people who buy clothing at a quote “historical sutler/shop” who’ve done absolutely no research. This is further from the truth; in fact most of the reenactors/living historians I know have done extensive research so that their historical personas are closer to the truth.
