Betty and Clark

Betty and Clark

We met the most interesting couple while parked in Hardin, Montana for two days. They are from northern New Jersey and are retired. They were on their way to Washington to visit their niece.

Clark discovered civil war re-enactments and has become obsessed with them. He has formed his own ‘company’ of 15 men and attends re-enactments about six times a year at various locations. He can recite history from the civil war for hours and keep you spellbound. His company chose the 44th Regiment out of Georgia (Confederates) to represent and research. He made it sound so interesting I was ready to join up with him myself. When Clark isn’t actually engaging in civil war, he’s hopping from high school to service club educating people on the subject. What a hobby.
