APPLETON -- What if you could change the past? Well a group of historical enthusiasts did just that Sunday in Appleton.
With the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, participants gathered at the American Legion Hall and reenacted it with miniatures.
After spending hours building the battlefield on the 18-foot table they played out the battle their way.
“The Civil War really evokes a lot of other thoughts of 'what if'. What if things have gone differently here, what if things have gone differently there? There's a lot of the mystic of the lost cause about it,” said Dan Wideman, event organizer.
Everyone enjoyed carrying out different scenarios and historical what-if's. The event started Saturday and wraps up today.
