| Vicksburg was spread out over months while Gettysburg was only 3 days. If that helps ya deside.
Widow , Its not that nessary that the NPS wants to protect the ground. but that its hollowed ground. Nothing that we could portray as a reenactor could even comke close to what thoses brave men, boys and in some cases women went through.
While most Parks has there living history programs. Stones River the past two years has doing the closest i seen to actually having a reenactment on NPS property.
I am part of the Volunteer Reenactors that do living history programs there through out the year.
On the Anv. both Union and confederate reenactors take turns firing there weapon .( never at each other ) but crisscrossing each other . While a Park ranger and other reenactors tell the story of what happend through first person accounts.
I'm not sure if other parks do the same thing but if you ever Get to Middle Tn on Dec 31st stop by and say hi.
