What: “Pickett’s Mill 5th Kentucky Federal Living History”
When: June, 1-3, 2012
Where: Pickett’s Mill State Park near Dallas, Ga.
Who: Armory Guards
POC: Herb Coats - Menion687 at aol.com
The Plan: To follow up the 2010 Confederate Pickett’s Mill “Real Time” Living History, the Armory Guards, with the conjunction with the Pickett’s Mill State Park staff will be hosting a Federal only Living History at the park in June. Participants will be portraying elements of the 5th Kentucky Infantry of Hazen’s Brigade as they maneuvered throughout the area to attempt to flank the Confederate Army of Tennessee.
This is NOT a static living history, and participants will be moving throughout the park following the footsteps of the 5th Kentucky. The actual movements will be followed as closely as possible throughout the day, into the evening on Saturday, and then finally falling back after the Confederate Night assault into Sunday. For those who have been not been to Pickett’s Mill, being fit to march up and down ridges and into ravines is of the essence.
This living history plus the Confederate-centric living history from 2010 will be the focus of the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Pickett’s Mill in 2014.
More information and a stand alone website link will be posted here when the time comes.
