Americans have a fascination with their past – not just discussing it, but actually reliving it. And we’re not just talking about your everyday Civil War reenactments. There are people across the country reenacting American sports, wars, and even lynchings.
On this episode of BackStory, we’re asking what drives people to reenact their past. Is it purely educational? Or is there something deeper, more personal at stake?
Tell us your story: Have you ever reenacted a time or event in American history? What drove you to lace up the boots or dust off the ten gallon hat? Is there a reenactment in your hometown, or in a place your family liked to visit? Let us know.
