    Hello All-

    I have reenacted for a while now, generally in the 1776-1815 range....and its a great hobby!

    New to this era though.....

    I want to study and reenact the mid to late 1850's, basically just before the war, from the civilian aspect of things. I am an avid hunter and will be building a percussion shot gun for myself as a hunting and reenacting tool; shot and round ball.

    A bit about myself:

    41 year old daddy and hubby from rural Northern Kentucky. I teach high school English and am a long time history nerd.

    I build or make almost all of my own gear...except for shoes and hats.

    My family fought on both sides. Two for the Confederacy and another for the Union
