It should be abundantly clear after viewing this video why the Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission hopes to steer clear of reenactments. Nothing like going to see a Confederate drill team show their stuff followed by the execution of a “Yankee” spy. This was filmed at “Six Flags Over Texas” at the beginning of the Civil War Centennial. Click here for another video of photographs of the various Civil War-related exhibits. I can’t wait to show this to my Civil War Memory students.
