I went to a Civil War re-enactment at Pilot Knob, MO one year. Very happy I did. None of my ancestors were in the Civil War, as all came to the US later on between 1880s and late 1920s, but this was one of several Civil War sites I've been to. I am also on Ancestry.com and love it for doing my dna ancestry. Have been able to confirm one of my grandparent's lineage for several generations back now because of their services and others doing dna, too.
