    New Gettysburg Reenactment CANCELLED

    Until I or anyone else has more confirmation I'm calling this a RUMOR! Though what I've seen looks to be very solid, but who knows that may change. A reenactment unit I've fallen in with several times, (not my own unit, just good friends) was planning on making the trip to Gettysburg this year...

    Fashion Show

    If anyone missed I posted pics with about 20 different style dresses/hoopskirts from the Zoar Reenactment this past weekend. Lots of lovely styles to view. I wished I could've got all of them but the venue was too huge (throughout the entire town) and I was stationary most of the time. Was not...

    Dr. Curt Fields, who regularly portrays General Ulysses S. Grant, has coined an important NEW reenactor and living history term: presentational arrogance.* I like the term a lot and think it's important enough to warrant its own thread and, perhaps, be applied more broadly. I can find no prior...

    Despite the rain and cold on Saturday and the much smaller turnout then before the reenactment went pretty well! It actually let up right before the battle but then got worse after.
