Civil War Reenactments

We will be in your state this coming fall and want to see a civil war reenactment. Where is the best one to see? Some reenactments dress up and shoot a lot of guns. I would like to see a good preformance. Where is your best?

I saw one in Rosco Village a few years back. As I recall it was around Independence Day though...
