Americans have a fascination with their past â€“ not just discussing it, but actually reliving it. And weâ€™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, weâ€™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.
