  • 2005 events

    Can we get a list of 2005 events started? I am looking for a date to schedule an event, but I do not a conflict if it is at all possible.

    So if possible just post the events that are already scheduled.

    Thanks for you help

      Re: 2005 events

      For those that might not be willing run the guantlet of the "welcoming committee" on the OTB forum, here is the event schedule listed on there. It is fairly complete in terms of events that might have a "national" and "regional" appeal, but may not include any smaller efforts or events that we have seen any information on.

          Re: 2005 McDowell Corrections

          Bob:

          Thanks for posting here. We miss your experience, wisdom and humour.

          McDowell really is "The Mother of All Authentic Events' in the East and deserves big time support. It is the ONLY Civil War reenactment recognized by the Library of Congress. It is a "season opener" in the sense that it is early. The location is a beautiful valley hamlet near the West Virginia line. My pastor's great-great- grandfather fought there in the grey as I and he will do next spring. The event serves so many purposes it is hard to draw limits on the good it does. It draws attention to the Civil War heritage of the local hamlet, so small and so difficult to reach. It brings in needed cash which enables the local economy to resist other, more tempting but less history-friendly options. It educates by showing the 2500+ county students who attend Friday's living history.

          This is the "feel good" event for the 2005 season. We, as reenactors, get to do "good" on so many levels that we really have to wear this event as a feather in our caps. The event has grown tremendously over the last 7-8 years. It does a great deal of good locally for the historical society and the local economy. I love this little valley and hope that you will lend it your support.
