This afternoon I ran into a Civil War buff who had just returned to Maine after having lived away for several years. He said that it was a shame there were never any ACW reenactments in New England (specifically in Maine) because he had enjoyed attending them while living down south. I said that he had missed the large reenactment in 2013 in Hinckley, Maine as well as the one held in Norlands in 2017. But outside of that, I couldn't think of any. Was he right? If so, why do you think this is so?

There are several events in New England, follow this thread https://civilwartalk.com/threads/2020-new-england-events.165481/ Schedules should be coming out soon so stay tuned. I belong to a unit based in New England as well as a unit down here in Florida. I have family in New Hampshire so I try to get to a few of the events up there in the summer while visiting family and the winter events down here in Florida.

Here is the schedule so far from the New England Brigade https://mb1020.wixsite.com/necwe/2017-schedule. Here is a CS unit based in Maine https://sites.google.com/site/mainerebels15thalabamacog/home and a Union unit based in Maine http://www.thirdmaine.org/index.php They don't have their 2020 schedules up yet but I'm sure they will soon.
That's wonderful! Thank you! I'll print all that out and bring it down to him. And I'll watch for an update on 3rd Maine.

My pleasure, I'll make sure I'll give you a whistle when the schedules come out. Should be seeing something soon. The unit I belong to is a CS unit based in Mass. Once the schedules come out they have a meeting usually the beginning of March to vote on which events they'll attend as a group.

Thank you! There's a lot more activity up here than either he (or I) thought!
