Seriously....... That's been a topic of concern in the hobby. When the Baby Boomers are gone, there might not be too many left to carry on. :unsure:
Many younger people are busy working and raising/spending money on children. Perhaps as they become "grey' themselves they'll have more time and money to reenact too.

The pictures don't do it justice, the snow still present was a bit of a nuisance. My wife didn't think to wear waterproof footwear and suffered from cold and very wet feet by the end of the day.
8 inches of snow on Thursday, and the parade was on Saturday! :frantic:
Yikes! I had no idea that it had snowed that much. A nuisance two days later; a game changer if it had been any closer!

A bit related to the event but in Harry Turtledove's Southern Victory series the United States hosts a holiday called "Remembrance" based off a militant, revanchist ideology after their defeat in the Second Mexican War.

That holiday in TL-191/SV shares the same name as the Gettysburg Remembrance Day.
