Due to the recent historic rulings regarding the use of firearms and artillery produced during the civil war, all those who wish to participate in Civil War reenactments must pay a royalty fee.

Unable to cope with the high fees, many participating regiments have adopted advertising campaigns to offset the cost in the form of corporate sponsorship. John Mobley of the "Pizza Hut Minnesota 13th regiment" says he doesn't mind wearing all the advertisement labels like he used to, but agrees that the Alabama 5th Prestone uniforms don't match with the yellow labels.

Footnote: Since this story, many battlefields have recognized the income potential and are studying the practice. Gettysburg has already changed its namesake to Gettysburg-Nextel Battlefield.
