Civil War soldier “experience” in Fredericksburg, Virginia

As we were getting ready to drive from Boston to Orlando, we thought about stopping in Virginia. In the end, my wife and dogs were less interested in Fredericksburg than I was, but I’m adding this one to my wishlist. Basically you spend a couple fo nights in a Civil War fort, hang out around a campfire, carry your own water like they did back in 1862, fire old-style weapons, and hit a few museums.

I found a lot of other Civil War tourism things – Civil War trails, Manassas, and Gettysburg to name a few – but no other “soldier experience” type deals. If anyone knows of another one similar to this Fredericksburg Civil War soldier tourism package, please let me know int he comments below.
