Remembering the other part of American history

The good part.  Yeah, there was a time when we could look at the failings and sins of America's past while still looking at the good and the nuance in our past just the same.  Read an American History textbook today and you have to almost read between the lines to see the good of our history.  It's mostly the modern 'things used to suck, but they're getting better now that we are here.'  But for those who remember the good on its own terms, there is actually quite a lot to remember.  Well done to these reenactors who recreated one of the heroic and celebrated moments in our history.  One of those pivotal events on which the whole history of our being here in America rested.  Well done indeed.
