So it is a farb town?LOL. That is pretty funny out of context. I can understand the need for civilian reenactors to have homes, buildings, etc to anchor their impression around, but it seems to me that this one tried too hard about half the time, and not enough the other half. Maybe the civilian equivalent of fighting for the park playground. (Btw, valuable advice: every reenactor should attend at least one event as a spectator. It's a sobering experience.)
I always found it amusing that the local reenactment has the MSG camping with CW tents ect…...Most local accounts have em sleeping in barns with farmers bringing em food.The Civil War did take place in more than open fields.
On the other hand some of us aren't easily offended and have a high tolerance for such thingsAt Jackson Michigan at the Cascades Park. One year they had a house of "working girls" in this fake town. I am not sure all visitors like women lounging around in their nether wear.
