  • Anything Cooking For 2016 EBUFU Events?

    Wondering if anyone has any ideas they want to float out there for 2016. Has anyone heard of any early plans?

      Hi Huck! 2016. It is a ways off, but we are trying to get back ahead of the planning discussions. If any members have something in mind or if you have heard about any potential EBUFU events, post 'em here.

        Agree that it doesn't hurt to start looking at event post 150ths. I'm game to hear of anything.

        Imagine that the Palmetto Guards will continue with the annual Pocotaligo picket posts in Charleston SC

          The Independent Rifles will keep doing small living histories, but the day of anything aside from NPS, State and Local Parks or a Picket post is going by the wayside. Been organizing for 12 years.

              I have an idea for a civilian event, but it needs further research and traction amongst the hobbyist groups. You know about it, Eric.

                  Thanks! I have a Facebook page in which I will publish research on and generate discussion. I will need the support of those that have planned events before since I haven't done it from that perspective before.

                    We are working on a living history at Lookout Mountain for October 2016. Impression will be 31st Iowa Company B. Will post more when we get everything worked out.

                      Working on a Western Theater Picket Post. Planning is in the initial stages, but it should be pretty cool. Timeframe will be early Fall (Sept/Oct), I think.

                      More to follow. Working on closer events at the moment!

                        Is that it for EBUFU then? LHs and Picket Posts?

                        No offense to those noble efforts, but it breaks my heart to think of the young men coming into today's hobby who did not get to experience Pickett's Mill 2001, War on the James, Burkittsville, Berkeley Hundred, Into the Wilderness, The Immortal 600, and other fine events where there was movement, numbers and immersion. Well, maybe not a The Immortal 600, no movement there.

                        I can fully understand how those that did this sort of thing for years have had enough, and I applaud Pat for what he did. He joins others who organized terrific events and others long-departed from event organizing in our strange hobby, including (in no particular order) John Cleaveland, Duke Culberson (dead AND departed), Mike Murley, Don Hubbard (also deceased), Chris Anders (who kept me in the field after Duke's death), Mudflap Harrelson, Bob Denton, Linda Trent, Kevin O'Beirne.

                        Who will step into their shoes?

                          Bill,

                          The living histories and picket posts were the incubators for the CPH framed EBUFU events. Quite frankly, I think it is time to get back to the roots of this end of the hobby. We need some events where the most exciting thing to happen is somebody's blanket catching fire. The real ones spent more time being bored than marching and fighting and there simply isn't enough of that in this hobby.

                          And to some degree, it is time to let the new guys take the wheel and think they came up with something new, while us old timers tell them how we already did that and there is nothing new in this hobby.

                            Joe, I have nothing against LHs and picket posts. I hope I did not leave that impression.

                            And I couldn't agree more that it's time for the old farts like you and me to move off and grumble by the fire while the young 'uns reinvent the hobby.

                            I just hope for their sake there's one or two individuals coming after us who will dream up the next great event at some point down the road. I recall my friends reminiscing about the 125th-Cycle and the "legendary" guys like John Wedeward or the Mudsills or (fill in your favorite mentor) who "invented" campaigning.

                            Maybe if we talk about the "good ole' days" of "Picketts Mill" or "War on the James" enough, it will inspire those whippersnappers to out-do us with even better events?

                              The Independent Rifles are working on a Blakely event. Dry run of multiple sides is this weekend. If it is successful we'll roll with it again.
