"Near as I Remember" - Reflections of a Civil War Veteran

Why did men (and women!) become soldiers during the Civil War? What did they eat and wear? How did they deal with the stress of being apart from their homes and loved ones, and facing battle, wounds and death? What did they do for . . . fun?

Rob Stone took up the hobby of Civil War re-enacting over 25 years ago. He portrays a typical Yankee (i.e., Federal) infantryman. A deep knowledge of American social and military history, combined with participation in dozens of battle re-enactments, has equipped him to educate others about this crucial time. Rob’s knowledgeable and entertaining talks transport you to that distant era of America's past!
