Any civilian units looking for female reenactors?


Dec 19, 2019
Hello, I'm on a search for a civilian unit to join. Female mid-40s, looking to develop more on my persona of civilian nurse. Which is what I work at full time for the last 20+ years. Being from east Tennessee I have what I'd term an Appalachian accent that there's no way to alter. So my idea is to portray someone from this general region. Historically my community was divided. Some were Union, some Confederate and some were Quaker. I can't seem to find any units of any type in my area. I'm certainly willing to travel. Covid has halted most living history events but some day I'm sure life will return to normal (or at least something close to it) Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

There are groups that do medical demos at all the big events that I'm sure would welcome a new member. There are two umbrella organizations on the CS side that are involved in the bigger event in the Mid Atlantic region, and I'd try and contact them, I'm sure they could point you in the right direction. If you're up to taking a trip to Gettysburg the Lady Farm has some events scheduled for the summer. I attended one last year and they had medical and civilian demos there.
