On Labor Day at Fort Kearny they had their living history of the Civil War.
By doing this they bring visitors into a real-life scenario.
"We do this to keep the history of the civil war alive," said Joe Carlson a reenactor.
And for Corey Hunt he's been reenacting since he was a little kid and says this strikes a passion.
"Adrenaline rush...once you fire a cannon it's just a hook," said Hunt.
For Joesph Carlson his grandfather got him involved.
"It's super fun. You get to shoot the rifles and see what the soldiers were like back then," said Carlson.
It's not all about the men in battle but women also fought in the civil war.
"It just shows how strong women are. How they can do just as much as men can. It's a lot harder for women I think because you have to hide yourself," said Reever.
For these reenactors this atmosphere teaches others what 1861 was like.
"Your living history," said Hunt.
The reenactors also said how hot it was to be in those uniforms made out of wool on a day like this.
This happens three days a year Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day.
Many of them are part of a boyscout group.
