Default The ultimate WWI mancave

Came across this article..pretty amazing what this chap has done to his backyard. One time I thought about building a WWII quonset hut in my backyard..made it a officers club like in the movie "Twelve O' Clock High".

I was wondering if anybody is involved in reenactment groups..such as the Civil War, WWI or WWII period. I know their located in many states and overseas and thought it would be both interesting and fun to do..as I'm a big historian and collect such stuff.
