Have you ever been to a reenactment or encampment? I've seen the Revolutionary War reeneactment at Jockey Hollow in NJ years ago, and a Civil War encampment here in Pa. I have yet to see a Renaissance Fair.
I have never seen a Civil or Revolutionary War reenactment but would love to. We got to go to the Renaissance Fair up in Charlotte year before last. We had a lot of fun. We couldn't afford any of the wonderful things they were selling, but I took lots of great pictures.
