We have a spiffy "Welcome Area" here on reenactor.Net. It will show you how to get around and do some of the things we've found need a little explaining... to visit our Welcome Area, go here: http://www.reenactor.net/new_area/welcome_message.html
A long period with a lot of history and many different impressions. From Old West reenacting, to SASS competition to the Boer War and the Spanish American War, this time period is chock full of interesting things to reenact. If you do one of these, please post about it.
