Reenacting the Mormon Battalion's journey, some reenactors will be walking from Iowa to San Diego from July to January.

Think of all the McDonald's along the way, that they can revictual at, that weren't there in 1847….

I dare say the boys in 1846 were more accustomed to walking long distances. If these folks are walking in period shoes/boots, they best harden their feet or bring an ambulance.

Maybe… remember, a good number of them were converts fresh off the boat from England!

I have done some crazy hardcore reenacting, but this stuff takes the cake. 6 months in wool and weather walking across mountains and deserts. If only I could talk the wife into letting me go….

The reenactor world takes caters for all sorts.

I wish them well as a reenactor.

That said there are certain things in history that send negative shivers down my spine and the Mormon Battalion is one such organisation.
