Two boys, Michael and Derek, are packing their video games and cell phones and hopping a train to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Whoops... their grandmother gathers up all the technology and tells them they are going to have to take this trip without electronics.
The boys arrive in Harpers Ferry and get off the train where they are introduced to an expert on the Civil War. Yawn. The boys are not expecting much and they certainly aren't expecting to put on a couple of Union soldier uniforms and walk into a game of war.
What would you do if you suddenly found yourself back in time surrounded by the battle of Antietam and just maybe a chance conversation with a president. Is this a reenactment or have the boys actually time traveled back to 1862?
