I read in the Japan Times that park officials will not allow reenactments this year. This apparently is not correct.
Organizers expect some 15,000 reenactors, 400 horses, 100 cannon and thousands of civilians interpreters for the planned four-day event. They are even going to recreate General Meade’s council of war, this time on the north lawn of the Wyndham and Courtyard Hotels.
I thought about going down there this year (wish I was down south and instead would be considering going up there!), but it’s going to be very busy. There will, hopefully, be a quieter time to visit later, after this anniversary blogging project is done, and after I have read Shelby Foote’s books, so I can explore that battlefield, like all the others available, slowly and in detail.
This was Gettysburg, 75 years ago:
(A note about this week’s post: I’m working on it now, and it will be out later tonight. For some reason, I didn’t include May 4-5 last week, so those will be in it, as well. Thank you for your interest!)
