Re: Larger events no-more?
From my research for my history of Civil War reenacting, I have observed that thanks to the increasing number of events being offered overall, there are many events that are orientated towards authentic minded reenactors that draw said reenactors from other events with reenactors not on the same level, and the kind of organizations that were able to centralize reenacting community efforts are not as strong/aren't around anymore. I think the big factor is that there is no centralization/efforts to draw the whole community together strong enough anymore for big events.
