Managed By: Icon Here Historic Reenactments
Description:
Reenactments that depict a historical event, whether it be perpetual (i.e., Colonial Williamsburg - Virginia), annual (i.e., Battle of Largs - Scotland, Anchorage Fur Rendezvous - Alaska), or ocassionally (i.e., Battle of St. Fagans - Wales). It must be a living history type event (not theatrical or fantasy) based on an actual historical event or person.
Expanded Description:
Historical reenactment is a type of roleplay in which participants attempt to recreate some aspects of a historical event or period. It may be a narrowly-defined time period, such as a specific war or other event, or it may be more broadly defined. The term living history describes attempts to bring history to life for the general public. Historical reenactment includes a continuum from well researched attempts to recreate a known historical event for educational purposes.

Types of reenactments that would fit into this category include, but are not limited to the following; American Civil War, World War Battles, Napoleonic Wars, Fur Trade, Viking Age, English Civil War, Revolutionary War.

Renaissance Fairs are not included in this category because they are based more on fantasy than historic accuracy of a particular person, place or event. There is a separate category for Renaissance Fairs. Also, plays (i.e. Macbeth, The Diary of Anne Frank) are not the type of waymarks we are looking for in this category.

Instructions for Posting a Historic Reenactments Waymark:
Name of the reenactment - city, state/country it takes place in (i.e., Morgan's Raid - Georgetown, KY/USA).

Coordinates of the main viewing area for the particular reenactment.

At least two photos; one including signage of the particular event and at least one of the actual reenactment.

The dates of the reenactment are a requirement for this category since reenactments are most often (but not always) not an event you can visit just anytime.

In the SHORT DESCRIPTION please tell us a brief history of the reenactment.

In the LONG DESCRIPTION please tell us as much as you can about the history of the event being reenacted.

While not all variables are required for posting a waymark to this category we hope you will make your best effort to complete as many of the optional variables as possible to help visitors to your waymark in the future.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
At least one photo of the reenactment taken by you along with your thoughts and impressions on the event and any changes in location or date the original waymarker may need to know about.
