What continues to amaze me, is the number of re-enactments of a very ugly time in our history during which tens of thousands of lives were lost. BTW, the majority of those re-enactments take place in the Confederate states, the states which caused and lost The Civil War, sometimes erroneously referred to as The War of Northern Aggression. A lot of people have too much time on their hands.

Do the Germans or the Japanese have re-enactments of their losing efforts?
