No - the 2nd Massachusetts prides itself upon being a versatile group, striving to present a full experience. The military impression is only one aspect. We have members that demonstrate period occupations such as medical doctor, carpenter, musician, (thread) spinner, and more. In addition, we have many women and children as members, and they represent the lives of "camp followers". Women followed the army to provide support services such as cooking, mending and laundry.
