We are ever so glad you came to visit!Welcome to Civil War reenacting; a splendid hobby that enables you to indulge your passion for history while giving visitors an experience that will enrich, entertain and enchant.

We strive to provide useful, practical information--shortcuts for getting started and tips to save time and money.  Remember that it takes about a year to get your gear together, so take your time, do the research first and get good stuff.  That is the best way to save time and money.
