English interest rises in Civil War - their own

England is traveling the re-enactor trail as interest in the 17th Century civil war grows. Some points of interest:

* Pipers need to know how to play laments.
* Worcester is the "Gettysburg equivalent" but without the tourism.
* It's important to re-enact the hanging of traitors after re-enacting the battle itself.
Kevin Phillips, you may recall, went to a great deal of trouble to show the connection between the English and American civil wars in his Cousins' Wars (right).
