The NPS doesn't allow reenacting on its property.  The reason is to protect the ground.  Maybe for the 150th they might change their mind.  But I doubt it.  Can you imagine thousands of reenactors and zillions of spectators?  Just think of the lines at the porta-potties, all along Emmitsburg Road or in the middle of the Peach Orchard.  Not a pretty picture.

I agree with the rest of you.  Visit the park when it's quiet and you can have time to think and absorb.

Someday I'll see Vicksburg, but again, not for a major event.
