This is a link to one of the sesquicentennial events posted on the Virginia Civil War website. It reminded of our discussion on Tuesday about people who want the Civil War experience but are not willing to give up personal luxuries or accommodations for it. In this particular event, a B&B is offering an exceptional “Civil War experience” while staying in luxury with fine dining. I don’t really understand how someone can expect to get a real experience while not doing anything even close to being real for the time period, but it seems to work since they get lots of reservations.
