War Re-enactment – Memorial Day

| May 27, 2013 | 15 Comments

Have you ever been to a war re-enactment? What better time to experience this than during Memorial Day weekend.

There we were in the middle of a fake war, covering our ears trying to bear the loud sounds of the gunshots. The sun was hitting me in the back of my neck, my feet were tired and the smoke was blurring the vision of my lens, I was not enjoying myself. 

Thankfully, then it hit me… this show I was watching happened in real life, but worse. How did they do it? How did they survive all these elements? The answer to that is that many of them didn’t.

As actors kept falling to the ground pretending to have been shot, some others kept shooting. I tried to follow up with what was happening but even for a show it all happen so fast.  There was no time to figure it out; there was only time to try not to die.

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday that occurs every year on the final Monday of May. It is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

“Since 1776 there has been a 91% chance that America was involved in some war during that calendar year.*  America has been at war for over 200 years almost non-stop.

Millions of military have died and have been wounded. Memorial Day is a day to remember them.

I highly recommend visiting Roaring Camp in Santa Cruz California to experience these type of events.  They built a whole town and camps for each of the opposing armies.  

My favorite part was the train ride. Roaring Camp’s steam engines date from 1890 and are among the oldest and most authentically preserved narrow-gauge steam engines in America.

The ride was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I enjoyed every minute of it “through towering redwood groves and up a winding narrow-gauge grade to the summit of Bear Mountain.” *

Moraleja: Let’s also remember what Memorial Day is NOT about:

    I have never been to a reenactment but I would love to be able to learn more about history. I don’t think there are many activities like that one around my area.
