CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Civil War re-enactors — blue and gray — have voted to support 10 major events to mark the 150th anniversary of the war.

Members of the Civil War 150th National Leadership Convention met in Chickamauga, Ga., earlier this month. About 75 representatives from different re-enactment armies nationwide attended.

In 2011, the convention will support the first Manassas battle in Virginia and Shiloh in Tennessee. In 2012, the second Manassas battle and Vicksburg in Mississippi.

In 2013, it will be Chickamauga and Gettysburg in Pennsylvania. In 2014, the Wilderness in Virginia and Atlanta.

In 2015, they will support Bentonville in North Carolina and Appomattox in Virginia, where the Confederate Army surrendered.
