History of High Ground Reenactors, Inc.
Listen! Did you hear? Was that really the roar of cannon, the thunderous crack of
musket fire, the clamor of exclamations conveyed in the whirlwinds of gentle zephyrs on a summer day? A dryness in the throat manifests itself as the spectacle of opposing troops march into a panorama of virulent
pageantry. How curious a sensation! A searing dryness yet an unutterable clamminess that foretells and sets the scene for the carnage yet to come. A sparseness of fleeting moments and reality tears you away with
such expediency that the present takes on a surrealness. A parallel world that, for its brief exhibition, seemed as real as the havoc it created on the faculties of the senses and mind.
