Real or Reenactment?
Parade Magazine in this morning's paper, shilling for Robert Redford's latest film, has an online quiz for identifying photos as Real or Reenactment?
Though both my wife and I have been around the reenactment community for years, neither of us has ever done American Civil War. Still we managed to get 19 out of 20 correct. It's certainly a sobering when you realize that what appear to be very good very good impressions of the Civil War can be distinguished in a few seconds by amateurs. God only knows what our 16th C. Spanish counterparts would think of how we look.
In other news: it looks like the federal government won't be shut down and the De Soto Landing reenactment can go on as scheduled.
