In costume and in collective imagination, re-enactors travel in time to Renaissance Fairs or Civil War re-enactments or the Victorian world of Charles Dickens, to name only a few. Of course, these environments are inevitably far more convenient and pleasant that the original version, but if you’re going to travel to someplace that you can’t actually go, you might as well make it nice.
Where do you go in your mind that is far nicer as you remember it than it was in the original version?
