I just wanted to wish every unit of the Battalion the best in this new reenactment season. We have picked up a few units over the past year and are continuing to grow and thrive. If I can be of any assistance to anyone, don't hesitate to email or call me, I operate an open door policy and am always glad to hear from all of you.
I am getting ready to post events for this new reenacting season. If any of you have events that you want listed, please email them to me and I will get them up on the site. If you have any pics of events that you want up on the site, send them to me and I will get them up.
