Extreme Civil War Reenactors

As America marks the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, National Geographic explores the exclusive and obsessive world of hard-core Civil War reenactors. From the firing on Fort Sumter to the iconic battlefields of Manassas/Bull Run and Gettysburg, the mecca of reenacting, we’ve embedded with these reenactors to find out how far they’re willing to go to relive history, and we traveled back in time with them to document how the Civil War was lived, felt and fought.  Through the experiences of four unique characters – a former Marine who served in Iraq, a teenager bent on joining the elite ranks, a woman who impersonates a male soldier, and a man who claims to be the reincarnation of a Gettysburg soldier – we get a candid look inside this insular and deeply passionate community and emerge with a new understanding of the sacrifices we made as a nation to preserve the Union.
