Categories: General Date: Oct 17, 2011 Title: 2017 winds down
2017 has been a tumultuous year for Civil War history and reenacting. Civil War history is under attack and many first-person reenactors, including myself, are losing engagements from fear and grass-roots political pressure. Events are shutting down as hosts are worried of backlash from groups opposed to history being taught.
A couple of dates have already been set for 2018, but it remains to be seen where things will go from here. Please remember the old unquoted saying . . .
"Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it."
