Do bleachers at battle reenactments have backs?

I'm just wondering if the bleachers have backs to lean on, or whether we should bother with bringing our bleacher seats for comfort. Thanks much!

In general, any place or event that I've been to that use temporary bleachers, the bleachers have no backs.

Yeah, I'm suspecting this is going to be the case, but was wondering if anyone had first hand knowledge from attending in previous years. I'd hate to lug the bleacher seats into the event for no reason.

The bleachers at the Annual Gettysburg Civil War Battle Reenactment do not have backs on them. I'd recommend bringing your bleacher seats. Enjoy!

No. However they're by far the best way to see the action as it's spread out over a large field.

No backs on the bleacher. If it gets uncomfortable you can stand (not sure if that would be easier or not.)

Bleachers do cost extra for no backs. I usually bring my own chair or just stand along side. Never felt was missing any part of experience.
