, the battle rnaceetments seem to be along the lines of the “Theatre of the Absurd”. 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. In reality if the battle conditions outlined above were real, there would be 100% casualties and the battle would last about 15-20 seconds.
