Unreconstructed String Band

The award-winning and ever popular string band, Unreconstructed, will play during the reenactment and for our ball. They do a fine job, and are well-received where ever they play.


Business Card Calendar

Our annual business card/calendars are finished and available in select locations and from Board members. These are handy reminders of the Perry County Fair, Black Gold Festival, and our reenactment. Everyone needs a calendar in their wallet or purse.

Sheriff Donates Hawkens Rifle

Perry County Sheriff Les Burgess donated the stock and ramrod of a Hawkens rifle to the Battle of Leatherwood. We will add a barrel, and this will put another person on the field. Thanks for the donation.

Reenactor Training

Many people have asked how to get into reenacting, so we will have a school, and offer training in safety on the field, marching in formation, weapon commands, etc. 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.
