historical recreation


December 8, 2021

Historical recreation, historical reenactment or historical reenactment are the names attributed to a kind of enactment in which the intention is to reconstitute historical events, more commonly military battles. The enactment can focus on relevant historical events from a particular era or recreate just an era in general. These reenactments can be quite specific, for example the event known as Pickett's Charge, which took place on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg during the US Civil War. Another example is the Passion of the Christ of New Jerusalem, where actors stage the event of the Passion of Christ in the largest open-air theater known today.


Activities related to historical reenactments date back to Ancient Rome, where famous battles were recreated in its Amphitheaters in the form of public spectacles. In the Middle Ages, in turn, historic battles in ancient Rome and elsewhere were staged in the form of "tournaments" In the 19th century, the staging of historic battles became popular in some countries, such as: United Kingdom - 1839 Eglinton Tournament. Russia - Siege of Sevastopol (1854-1855), Battle of Borodino and the Taking of Azov (1696). In addition, large parades were used to commemorate civic events, such as the 150th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis in 1914. Especially during and from the centenary of the US Civil War, which occurred in 1961, the staging of battles related to that war became popular, attracting many spectators and also several very dedicated producers.
