Celebrate Living History

Civil War DaysReenactments have a long history. The Romans staged recreations of famous battles as a form of public spectacle. In the nineteenth century, reenactments were popular across Europe. In the early 20th century mass pageants were used to commemorate civic events like the 150th anniversary of the founding of St Louis in 1914.

During and since the centennial of the American Civil War in the United States beginning in 1961, reenactments of Civil War battles has attracted many reenactors, who are some of the most dedicated.

We at Accessible Archives have a great deal of respect for these dedicated men, women, and young people who help keep history alive and visible.
