Guarding Savannah March 2-6, 2011
“Guarding Savannah” is a semi immersion event that the Armory Guards is hosting at Ft. McAllister State Park near Richmond Hill, Georgia March 2-6, 2011. The event is a blend of a the “Christmas at the Fort McAllister,” a weekend of recreating the garrison life of the fort as well as highly successful “garrison” events of the recent past such as the highly lauded “Winter of ’64” and the Fort Granger events.

Imprisoned on the Frontier - November 18-20, 2011
The 6 companies of the 8th US Infantry that were taken prisoner after the Battle of Adam's Hill near San Antonio, Texas in May 1861 are largely forgotten soldiers of the Civil War. These men were held until 1863 among various internment camps in Texas without ever having fired a shot against either the Texans or Confederates. The remote location of Fort McKavett State Historic Site will allow the participants to be able to portray the prisoners of war and the Texans with very little modern anachronisms either on site or within their viewshed. It is a forgotten facet of Texas history, and an even less known facet of American Civil War history.

Perilous times in South Union - Oct 21-23, 2011
The WIG is hosting an event at the Shaker Museum at South Union, Kentucky which will recreate the well documented movements and actions of the early Confederate forces that moved through this area from August to December 1861. We will be portraying Confederate infantry and cavalry forces. Civilians will be an important part of this event to bring the Shaker Village to life. We will need folks willing to portray Shakers. There will be some limited roles for non-shakers as well. As important as the Civilians are to the event, registration will be limited.

Raising The First Volunteers - April 14 – 17, 2011
Based on extensive primary source research, this event will be a semi-immersion (due to the location of the fort), experience of the soldiers of the First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry, and the civilians who thronged to the limestone fort on a daily basis. Live in the stone barracks; do guard duty. Have many interactions with friends and family while daily awaiting orders to the seat of war.

To Prevent the Effusion of Blood - January 7-9, 2011
Charleston, South Carolina - On the night of December 26, 1860, Major Robert Anderson decided to move the Fort Moultrie Garrison to Fort Sumter in his words "To prevent the effusion of blood." A merchant ship, the Star of the West, was sent with supplies but was turned back by South Carolina Artillerists on 9 January 1861. This event is still considered by many scholars as the first shot of the Civil War. We are holding a living history to commemorate these events at Forts Moultrie and Sumter.
