Very good. I looked hard to find some anachronisms, but couldn't.

!! there may be a few indications that it's not 1863 but those civil war reenactors take authentication pretty seriously, they even eat hard tack biscuits (and grits) at the camp site!

Those aren't war vets, they are just reenactments, the difference is massive.

I meant to put in "civil war veterans" but couldn't edit the title:(
But yes, no one would mistake real war veterans with reenactors although some reenactors are actual war veterans (who like to shoot reproduction old muskets!)
