Gone to soldiers [cached]

But Bill Christen, editor and publisher of The Watchdog, a quarterly journal for reenactors, puts the number between 20,000 and 25,000.

Most of them, he says, are white males between the ages of 35 and 55, though the hobby is becoming more diverse, with several all-black units currently forming.
Though reenacting is still popular, Christen says, participation has dropped from its peak of about 30,000, 15 years ago.He attributes the decline in part to decreased energy as participants grow older, but also to the times."There's a real war going on," he says, "and some people might think twice about playing soldier."
