Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879057831, Paperback)

From the battlefield to the encampment, from the field hospital to the ballroom, the photos & anecdotes in this book bring the experience of Civil War reenacting to life. In reenacting, every battle is played anew, with marches, campaigns, & the battle strategies suited to the specific occasion. Boys & men -- & even a few women -- dress in 1860s uniforms & either sign up as volunteers for the Union or Confederate armies or are drafted into service. Others don period costumes to serve as support for the soldiers in uniform. This is living history at its best. The "I was there" anecdotes of Courtney, a folksinger & historian, will make you feel like a time traveler.
