Museum of Work and Culture, Market Square. Civil War living historians and reenactors do not simply buy and wear costumes that resemble the period. Reenacting requires a great deal of research, dedication, and hard work, particularly when going back in time to one of the country's most difficult periods. Denise and Paul Bourget will discuss the process of becoming Civil War re-enactors and living historians. Free; register. (401) 769-9675; email@example.com; www.rihs.org.
