A proposal

Instead of watching costumed reenactors with the bulging bellies of our age:

“Let every battlefield visitor load and fire a period weapon. Let them move under heavy loads and a hot sun. Let them stand opposite opposing tourists for long spells wearing woolen clothing. Let them elect their guides. Let them wait interminable periods for directions from their guides.”
