I see. Tempting idea for me, but the most tempting idea is to dress out at Vicksburg battlefield.At our Chickamauga gathering last year a few of us had hats and one couple wore period attire at our Saturday night dinner. I might wear my attire at our Hotel Manager's Socials on Thursday and Friday night.
Heck if I could carry a musket and have full gear I'd be sorely tempted to see if could walk the whole battlefield with "full pack". I walked that whole field at 14 years old in blue jeans and boots in July, I bet I could pull it off in full uniform and accoutrements. Even if I'm about thirty pounds heavier, and almost 16 years older.
Very tempting idea, but the NPS frowns on armed men walking their sites, and I'd miss out on very informative tours.
