What is "Reenacting?"
"Reenacting" or "living history" is a hobby where the participants try to portray people of the past. Some people just have a hard time conceiving of this, they ask "DO they pay you?" NO! "How do you know who wins or who dies?" Some battles are scripted out as to the end, some are called "tacticals" and may have judges or rules as to what happens. Some events are just "living history" (as they are so called), these usually being set up for the public.
"I still don't get it!" Probably the best explanation I have ever heard was this: Imagine your most favourite movie. Imagine being able to "step into" that movie -- that's a lot like reenacting. And no, we don't have a script, or anything like that. Our actions are usually just us trying to live in that time period.
