    I have not heard of it, is it similar to Ohio's reenactment with landing craft and aerial involvement?

    Wow never heard about that one, lol, when I was a sea explorer we got a mag detailing what other explorer posts were doing. I read about some explorer post in the east that specialized in civil war reinactment how they studied the war the uniforms and would duplicate the uniforms as authentically as possible. Some would pick a specific company appearently many of the different state units would add things to their uniforms to make them unique a colored trim wearing coon hats and other additions. The thing about civil war when they fired those black powder guns wow what a smoke cloud. The canons too back then it wasn't hard to know where your enemy was firing from a thing we do a lot to keep the enemy from knowing these days with smokeless powder and flash hiders. Anyway it was interesting to read and a lot of gals were in those explorer posts actively involved.
