We will be conducting company level drill along with School of the Soldier, School of the Company, and Skirmish Drill. (With a little early war confusion added!) This is the event to bring your A-frame tents and set up along the company street. The event “feel” is similar to the “Return to the Ranks” event from 2005. Robby Mitchell has compiled some GREAT research regarding this company. The basic kit guidelines are civilian clothing or gray military frock coats. Kepis or slouch hats with black pre war or early war accouterments only! Bring your smoothbore musket! Bring your flintlock musket! If you do not have either of these a proper rifle musket is fine. This is the event to “stump” for an NCO position too!! Step up and deliver a Fire Breathing Secessery Speech! This is going to be a great early fall event!!!!

    As always the Armory Guards are looking for men who want to experience Civil War living histories and battle enactments in an authentic and a well researched manner. We are primarily a campaign foucsed unit, and AG members have kits for Confederate, Federal, and civilian impressions. We are primarily a Georgia unit, but we do have memebers from the Carolinas, Alabama, Florida, and Tennessee. We are different than many units in the fact that we spread the military leadership roles through the membership base at various events. We welcome new research regarding the ACW and encouarge our memebers to seek out their own information. Our three elected positsions are administrative and event planning in nature. If you want more than the typical battle-fest then the Armory Guards has a place for you. Please contact one of the Armory Guards leadership.

    The 2010 Bump if you will.

    We've already had a few events come and go, but there are still more coming up. We are working within the WIG battalion at Before the Breakout in September and we've got a few Living Histories that we are involved in. One is in Atlanta this July and this November Lookout Mountain. If you are interested in the Amrory Guards please drop via PM/email or visit our website here: http://www.armoryguards.org

    It is the philosophy and intention of the Armory Guards to accurately and respectfully portray the common American Civil War infantry soldier from the western theater with particular attention given to the events within Georgia in 1864. Further, this organization exists to expedite growth in the study of the Civil War by continually educating the unit's members as well as the general public.
