Civil War Reenactments

The American Civil war, fought between 1861 and 1865, is one of the most reenacted periods of American history. Reenactments don't just offer a glimpse into the conflict, a reenactment will often present an overwhelming amount of information and history about 1860's America.

Tactical Reenactment: Some reenactments will be listed as "tactical" or "private". These events are closed to the public and open to reenactors only. Many reenactors enjoy immersing themselves in the period and there just weren't any spectators with smart phones in the 1860's.

Sutlers: You will often see information regarding sutlers on various websites and event listings. A sutler is generally known as a person who followed an army selling their wares.
