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 which would otherwise be difficult with spectators.
Airsoft Reenactment: Airsoft is another form of living history that takes place. These events are much different from the typical reenactment. Like tactical reenactments, these events are typically closed to the public.
