Spring 2018 Calendar
Regarding Civil War Reenactments
We typically leave on
Friday nights around 7:00 PM to arrive later that evening
at the event site. We will set up camp before we
morning we get up, do a few work details, have
breakfast, drill, eat lunch and then fight the battle. Between lunch
and the battle there is time to clean guns, etc.
There are also allowances for a little free time before dinner. At
many reenactments there
is a Victorian Dance that is enjoyed by all. Sunday
mornings are much like Saturday with the addition of
a brief morning chapel service. Following the battles, we
clean guns, pack up camp and then head for home. The cost to
crew members for reenactments is $20.00. This pays for
food, shooting supplies and equipment maintenance. Any gate fees will will announced and are each participant's responsibility

The Crew supports events and
activities sponsored by the Longhorn Council in various ways. Many
of the members serve on staff and others act as
“hostiles” for reenactment programs when we are able. We will
try to organize a big effort with other reenactors
for at least one of the weekends. Following camp, we assist with cleaning guns and equipment.
