Its another year, and time for more projects!

We plan to chink the cracks in the outside of the Cornett Cabin this year, finish wiring that cabin, enclose a wing of the blacksmith shop, and build a shed to house the salt kettles. We will improve our lighting on the battlefield, add motion lights, and add more security cameras.
Last year, we finished the bath house, making us the only reenactment in the area with showering facilities, replaced the wiring in the Cornett cabin, replaced all fluorescent lights in the General Store and blacksmith shop with LEDs, chinked the inside of the Cornett Cabin, and updated our Civil War displays.

Reenactor Training

Many people have asked how to get into reenacting, so we will have a school next spring, and offer training in safety on the field, marching in formation, weapon commands, etc. It is tentatively scheduled for the second Saturday in May (May 12). You may register by calling Gary Begley at 606 438-0494, or contacting Kerry Crutcher at

Consignment Service

If all the high living and holiday food has caused you to outgrow your uniform, or you have items you don't need, we offer a consignment service for CW items- uniforms, leathers, surplus guns, etc. The ladies are included, and can sell their ball dress which no longer fits. We sold a couple belts, a jacket and a cap on consignment at the reenactment. This puts money in the seller's pocket, and gives the buyer a nice item at a reduced price.
