Visitors are welcome to stop by the encampments of both Union and Confederate reenactors and talk with them about the life of the common soldier during the War Between the States. Visitors should feel free to ask about the food they are eating, the weapons being used, drill, camp life and even tactics.

You may want to ask the same question of multiple reenactors. Remember as well that answers may be different depending upon the encampment. Confederate soldiers will likely feel much differently about the war than Union soldiers.
