Article: "Civil War reenactors immerse themselves in time period"

An article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette from almost two weeks about about Civil War reenactors and their passion and devotion to their hobby. I know a couple of the living historians featured, and I disagree 100% with opinions that living history has no value to the profession or to education. This is what piques people's interest and spurs them to study history more in depth. It also creates a more lasting impression among spectators about how life was then. And it's fun, of course.
