Aren’t Civil War reenactments kinda morbid?

According to Wikipedia, battle reenactments have been a tradition for centuries. I suppose it’s an interesting way to learn about history. Still tho, it seems like Civil War reenactments are just morbid.  Think about it.  Did we win? Did anyone really win? We were fighting ourselves. I bet the native Americans don’t reenact Custer’s Last Stand even tho they won.  Because, did they really win in the end?  Does Germany reenact World War II battles?  How about the Jews?

It just seems a bit odd to me that someone would voluntarily dress up to go pretend fight in a battle when we were at war with our own country.

How does that make you feel?
