Just thought I'd share a link to a video with you. My old millitary group (1st Penn, Battery B, Light Artillery - aka "Cooper's Battery") annually participates in a School Demo at the Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate School (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA). This year, the OC register did a short video about their History Day (and interviewed a few people - a reenactor, a teacher, and a student). The video is now posted on the OC Register website. It's pretty neat. =)
To view the Video, click on this link:
"Watch Boom! Civil War re-enactors set up camp at RSM school"
Rancho Santa Margarita Intermediate School's history day event
brings the sounds, sights, and smells of civil war and western
era history to life.
(And yes, I did this demo back when I was with the Battery - and the students are encouraged to dress up. Many will go out and rent costumes and the like.)
