  • The Ray Prosteen Calendar & a Discussion About 2015 & 2016

    Morning!

    A gentleman named Pete Berezuk has taken it upon himself to replicate a comprehensive event calendar that used to be put together by Charles Heath, including all time periods, holidays, big mainstream events, etc. Using this calendar as a reference, what EBUFU events are on the horizon in 2015 & 2016?

    Here is the calendar:

    http://rayprosteencalendar.info/

    Let's get a public discussion going on the EBUFU events for 2015 and 2016. In our AC Event Committee, these are the events we have identified for 2015 so far:

    March - Bentonville Adjunct?
    April - Saylor's Creek Adjunct
    July - Corricks Ford
    July - Fort Caspar (Platte Bridge Station) Cavalry Event

    What else?

    Word on the street, or maybe I should say a facebook event page, is that the Sailor/Saylor/Sayler's Creek adjunct (S3C) has been moved from the first weekend in April to the last weekend in March. The reason for the purported change is that the first Sunday next April is Easter. I mention it in this thread because it's noted as being in April.

    Sure would be nice if someone in an official capacity could step forward and clarify this. The silence about the event in general has been rather disappointing. We're less than a year out and there is zero official notice, zero official plan and lots of speculation.

    My first real leap into campaigning was at the S3C in 2000. Haven't done one since and am looking forward to this one. Having started the 150th cycle on Sumter for the surrender, I was hoping to do S3C and the Appomattox living history on consecutive weekends. Looks like I may need to regroup on that one.

      We announced an event at Blakely. Think late March to not conflict with other surrender events. Not an adjunct.

        Sailor's Creek is March 27th - 29th, 2015. Will Eichler is putting a campaigner regiment together, 121st New York Infantry. The distinguished opposition is portraying elements of Crutchfield's Brigade. Skip Owns is on board as brigade commander. Small battalions are being formed under Mike Hendricks, John Pagano, and some guy that gets people lost named Coats. :) Each of these commands are limited in numbers. I pretty have my command already put together.


        As I've said a few times, my crew and I are hosting a living history at Chickamauga next September. Right Lee? Right???????!!!!???????

                ET, The WIG effort for Sailor's Creek will has a FB page, but I'm working on a stand alone information website for our effort. This is not for the entire "brigade" effort btw. Also, we are shooting for the weekend of September 19-20 for the Mobile CS living history at Chickamauga NPS.

                  Herb:

                  You good-to-go for Chickamauga? Cool. It is added to the list. Is that the correct Facebook Page for Sailor's Creek?

                    I'll talk to Skip Owens and Colin Edward, and see if they'll let me put a FB page together for the entire brigade.

                      I'll go ahead and post this again, hoping that the second time takes notice. The Independent Rifles will be hosting a surrender event at Blakely/Spanish Fort in 2015. Judging off of previous messages about Sailors Creek we settled on the last weekend in March, I see that has now changed. Hate to see it happen, but we will push forward. Joe Blunt has stepped up to form the 83rd Ohio while the Independent Rifles will be forming 2/6th Missouir Consolidated and 1/4th Consolidated
