I understand that Mr. Kennedy was there as a humorist, but I’m sorry he fought the urge to correct the woman who told him that there were thirty thousand arms-bearing black Confederates. I could imagine students watching this and simply accepting his sardonic reply that those men were “misguided,” rather than understanding that they were actually nonexistent.

I hear you, but I wonder whether Kennedy really understands this specific history.

I thought it was pretty funny and if you need any convincing about the wisdom of re-enacting, there it is. I think some of you need to lighten up.
