They consist of ranks of mostly older, many overweight men standing in static formations, facing their opposing ranks maybe 40-50 yards apart in open fields blazing away at one another amid clouds of black powder smoke. Every now and then a soldier falls while the one standing next to him is glancing at his watch. The battle ends and a dozen or so “dead” reenactors get up and go have lunch.
