Nothing says "America's great love of history" like a Civil War reenactment encampment. Complete with PortaPotty.
Squint and you can see it, there in the background.
How is this a fascinating fact? Um, what if I mention that during the Civil War there were no chemical toilets? So often they used streams/rivers near the encampment. But not always ones DOWNRIVER from the encampment.
Not the only reason there were so many disease-induced fatalities during the War, but perhaps the grossest one.
