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.

Answered prayers

We frequently hear stories of how an extremely important need was "saved" after prayer, such asShe was near death but we prayed for her and she lived.Our marriage almost fell apart but we prayed and God saved our marriage.My job was nearing being taken from me but we prayed and God saved my job.But if we think of God as a Father, any parent does not always say, "Yes" when a request is made.  Sometimes a parent says, "No," and sometimes a parent says, "Not now," and sometimes a parent says,…See More

Christian Men

Regardless of the specifics, we can all agree on one thing. Jesus Christ was the perfect Man who died and rose again for us such that we could have fellowship with Him
