MISSION:
The "Blue and Gray Civil War Reenactment" is conducted to
educate the general public about the historical significance of the Civil War and its effect and influence on the history of the great nation of the United States of America including demonstrating the horrors of war which led to an enormous number of ultimate sacrifices given by the military and how the end of the war resulted in the abolishment of slavery. 
Our hope is that it serves to stress the importance of Peace and Conflict Resolution which is one of Rotary's Areas of Focus.
