The Re-enactor Recruitment Day was open to the public, with hopes that the participating groups would add to their numbers, but discussions between the various groups also took place. “There’s a lot of cross-pollination going on between the groups,” said Karl Warner, program and education coordinator at AHEC. “A Civil War actor might want to try out World War II.
