I find the Civil War re-enactment to be a very peculiar event, to say the least. Isn't the Civil War about Americans shooting at and killing each other?
Some will argue that it's a historical event. So is World War II. But I can't imagine anybody trying to re-enact it every year. Just imagine the uproar if that ever took place.
So why demonstrate how Americans killed each other? Don't we already see enough violence every day?
