Weekend Civil War reenactments wherein history enthusiasts live the life of a typical Civil War soldier, as near as possible, are a fast-growing hobby across the world. Such events are common in Arkansas, with one of the best known being held at the Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park in Washington County. The event, which started in the 1980s, is held in early December during even years. Shown here are reenactors in one of those early 1980s events.
