I had an interesting conversation Sunday in church with a reenactor. This man had just been to a living history program at a Revolutionary War site in North Carolina. I knew him as a Civil War reenactor so we started talking about those communities. He didn't realize I've been writing this newsletter for several years.

He was describing how in the reenacting community there is a spectrum of people who take it very serious and try to be authentic versus on the other side guys who view it as a good excuse to get together and drink beer on the weekend. He is hoping that in our area more people will start taking an interest in the Revolutionary War as we are approaching a major anniversary.

Apparently I've had my head in the sand because the booming aspect of reenacting is indeed WWII. He was describing a huge D-Day event that happens in Michigan complete with amphibious assault craft. I've been spending my free weekends camping with the Scouts so I was clueless that all this was going on.

It would make sense for there to be WWI stuff going on since we are still in the middle of the centennial of this conflict. However, since there is a much smaller footprint in WWI I can see where it might not be as popular as the later WWII.
