So in deciding on an impression to reenact, I decided to look up specific things women did during the war. I came across the illustrious vivandieres, and I may very well be hooked on that impression now.
My main question is, would any units even be interested in accepting that impression into their ranks? I imagine ones with a civilian "auxiliary" would be more willing to accept that. I realize they weren't officially part of the unit or military.
If any of you are an officer/NCO/member of a unit, do you think your unit would be accepting of that? Or is this something I may just have to go alone?
I'm not terribly worried about which side, although I suppose Eastern PA/NJ would be ideal as far as unit location. I'm willing to link up with units outside of that area if need be.
