whats the situation with covid and reenacting last few years? turnout good? havent been involved in 5 years maybe 4 years we got started at stockton-had watched as family hosted the event on their farm and we got into the 3rd Iowa artillary and a virginia cavalry unit that year and next were fairly active and made some effort to fit in group dynamics is a challenge for me at times… we still had a great time and we read and visit c war sites on vac, still have equipment -conf.what kind of commitments to join? we may be able to do a few … I always liked to act well, consequently i got banged up a few times falling seems stupid-but liked dramatic stuff..first to be a casualty! My need for novalty in reenacting essential being taken prisoner etc.well I inquired of a union unit from wi interested in being an extra rather than a faithful.
