History[ edit ] Despite the act’s official title dating it to , its origins can be traced as far back as the Civil War when the United States Congress passed a total moratorium on civil actions brought against Union soldiers and sailors. Examples of civil matters included breach of contract , bankruptcy , foreclosure or divorce proceedings. Congress’ intent in passing the moratorium was to protect both national interests and those of servicemembers. First, Congress wanted servicemembers to be able to fight the war without having to worry about problems that might arise at home. Secondly, because most soldiers and sailors during the Civil War were not well paid, it was difficult for them to honor their pre-service debts, such as mortgage payments or other credit. Congressional concern about protecting the rights of servicemembers was raised again during World War I when the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act of was passed. Like the Civil War-era moratorium, the legislation was designed to protect the rights of service members while they were serving in the war. Although the Act did not include a total moratorium on civil actions, it did protect service members from such things as repossession of property, bankruptcy, foreclosure or other such actions while they were in harm’s way. The present-day statute, essentially a reenactment of the law, was passed in to protect the rights of the millions of service members activated for World War II. The major difference between it and the version, other than minor modifications, was there was no provision for the act to expire, as it did after World War I.

Some things bother me more than others, and though I am far from perfect myself and indeed have been guilty of some of my own complaints in the past , I feel that the hobby as a whole would be greatly improved with a few changes. These are non-period-specific, and some apply more in some eras than others. Washing your clothes so damn much!
Letting your clothes show wear. If you must wash your reenacting clothes, wash them by hand in a sink or bathtub and hang dry them. I have a confession to make:

The first would be like catching your boyfriend in his boxers pop-lockin’ to the movie Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo — aka, “Ah-ha, so you are a dork! That would be the “Ah-ha, so you’re a dick! But what if your ah ha moment was something completely different?

Despite this, there were strong attempts made by parents to keep their children looking as well-dressed as possible. Both sides were united in wanting to preserve children’s innocence and show that they were not to be easily beaten.
Boys’ Clothing In the 19th century, boys wore dresses for the first five years of their lives – something that had been done for centuries. Then they were “breeched,” meaning they gave up dresses and started wearing breeches, marking their entry into a man’s world. The s saw the beginning of knickerbockers as boys’ wear. These were wide-leg trousers that buttoned at the knee and came with a matching waistcoat and jacket. Boys wore white shirts and bow ties.
Leg wear was long stockings and low-cut boots. Essentially, boys dressed to look like their fathers with the difference being that their jackets and trousers were shorter. They might also wear a cap, rather than a hat. Girls’ Clothing On the face of it, Civil War clothing for girls looked very like what their mothers were wearing.

Called the Spencer Repeating Rifle, it was fired by cocking a lever to extract a used case and feed a new cartridge from a tube in the buttstock.

The 22nd Wisconsin was organized in Racine and mustered into federal service on Sept. It earned the nickname “The Abolitionist Regiment” during a march through Kentucky and Tennessee, prior to its first action in the war. The regiment was known for taking in runaway slaves and protecting them from the slave owners who came looking for them.
The 22nd Wisconsin’s record in battle is spotty. Half the regiment was captured in its first battle at Brentwood, Tenn. A week or two later, the other half was captured, and they were all marched off to the Confederacy’s Libby Prison in Richmond, Va.
