On the Steps of the McLean House
To Commemorate Major Military Actions
At reenactments held at locations established to commemorate major military actions, "LINCOLN'S GENERALS" establishes a "campaign headquarters"
To Commemorate Civil War Events
At reenactments not directly associated with a battlefield, "LINCOLN'S GENERALS" sets up a "winter camp". Winter camps allowed the armies to cease major combat operations in favor of much-needed down-time, which the soldiers used to rest, participate in camp activities and train for the next season of warfare. Winter camp was also a time for soldiers to reconnect with their families.
