The 2nd most authentic event I have ever attended. Not even Gettysburg comes close! Funny, my top two events are from here and Franklin TN. When we got to the battlefields, we immediately started "entrenching" - digging with whatever we had - plates, cups, shovels (1), even the heels of our brogans. 1st day, we barely got a couple inches dug before they "hit us". But the ground was very sandy and we dug quickly and easily. Camping in the woods was fantastic - our camps showed little of organization.
