Parlina....the announcer mentioned that many of the actors were also in the movie on Gettysburg.....by the way, next year will be the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and they will have another reenactment.....I'm sure I will attend...

Anna Maria.....the actors that I spoke to after the battle remained in character as if they were still in 1862......they referred to me as "there's another modern person"....

Hans...it was a wonderful reenactment...I believe the announcer said 5,000 actors were involved.....I know there were many soldiers and support personnel....Next year, Gettysburg will be celebrating their 150th anniversary and there will be another big reenactment...We only live 60 minutes from that battlefield...you should come over and visit next year...

Great stuff, although I have not seen a reenactment of that battle. Great characters, they really live the part.

Jim...they certainly do play their parts...they study the history of their character....the battles....it's extremely interesting to talk with them.....Gettysburg will be having their 150th anniversary this year....I'm hoping to attend....
