I used to think that Civil War reenacting might not always be PC.......

Reenacting the CW is not something I have ever been drawn to.  Wearing wool and marching in a straight line in the Summer seems to be a bit much.  I like to do the F&I and Rev War era where we can hide in the shade and shoot at the opposition.

All kidding aside have you noticed that most reenactors never ever shoot live fire so they don't really know how their smokepole really works.  They are also the worst at properly cleaning their weapon.

Gentlemen,
I reenact the American Civil War as a member of the West Augusta Guard of the 5th Virginia Infantry Co. "L" of the Stonewall Brigade. We are a group of men who live in Augusta County, Virginia and study and follow the lives of the men of the WAG.

I started thinking about this title too much.

What would "unmanly" reenacting be? Regency and Jane Austin? Woodstock? Most all other reenactors are portraying folks on the frontiers practiced in the use of shooty and stabby things who make fires and eat meat.
