I've been a CW reenactor for 20 yrs. I've slept and reenacted on some historic battlefields - Gettysburg, Shiloh, Antietam, Andersonville, Resaca, Kennesaw, Atlanta, etc...We do strive for authenticity. My uniform is dyed with a period recipe, hand sewn, etc...We have to portray both sides to make it look like an even fight. Here in the South everyone wants to be Confed. just the opposite up North. So we all carry both uniforms and sometimes don't know which we will be wearing until the day of the reenactment. I had a gg grandfather that fought and died with a GA Confed. Inf. unit. I also relic hunt with a metal detector and have dug artillery shells, buttons, bullets, etc...I also buy and sell the relics. The 150th anniversaries have already started. The big one will be Gettysburg next year. I participated in the 135th and we had enough people to do a full-scale Pickett's Charge. It was a sight to see and experience. We do have people come over from England and Germany to participate. It is a GREAT way to escape the 21st century for a weekend and live like a soldier during the war. We recently filmed a new movie for one of the National Parks. Here is a pic of one of my pards. Feel free to ask me questions. I love that stuff.
