The nearest Civil War battle was a long way from our part of the country. 

But the Civil War and its impact on the country are too big to contain on the actual battlefields. 

That's why re-enactors like the members of the Cascade Civil War Society don the blue and the gray and wage fake war. 

They'll fight "The Battle of Stewart State Park" next weekend.  A couple of re-enactors join us to explain the process, and its appeal.
