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 kerry@tvscable.com.

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.

Civil War Artifacts

We have a very good display of CW artifacts, and have recently added several of interest. A Confederate belt buckle with an embedded bullet leads to speculation as to what happened to the owner.

More Artifacts

We recently purchased a board from Elmira prison, a brick from Libby prison, and a bottle from Lookout Point prison to go with our straight razor and print of Andersonville prison. We have a piece of General Lee's hair, and the same from Abraham Lincoln.
