There are not enough words to truly encompass my disappointment in this event. My husband and I counted down the months and were like two excited little kids. We rearranged work schedules and paid grossly inflated hotel costs to only be let down. We bought a 3 day pass and simply cut our losses and skipped the last day due to the fact it was horrid. The "battlefield" was an inadequate sized patch of land that was only visible from the grand stands that you had to pay extra for and once you did, you still were not guaranteed a seat. The commentary was biased and inaccurate. My husband and I were appalled! We wanted to hear some of the speakers but could not get a seat in the tents because so many people were seeking refuge from the heat. It was a fiasco and we will never return to another. We wished we would have saved the money and time and just enjoyed the park. GAC should be ashamed as should many of the reenactors ("We win this one, right?"). Disgusting.
