Subject: Star'd 'Battle-Flag'& Other Re-enacting

Message Detail:
Dave,

Re-enactors are lot mixed (or thrown) to-gether for what 'each' believes is re-creating history.

When you ask, "wouldn't it be nice to have [the]
occasional use of the star flag in such reenactments?", you have no idea what it is like in the ever vain attempts of the past to wish charging lines of re-enactors to become casualties when it serves the historical acounts of the event being portrayed. How many Confederate re-enactors breech the Federal line at every 'occasional' Gettysburg event? How many occasional battle flags might we expect to arrive with each signallist? Ooops! I left my square centre'd ones at home.

Walt
