Occupation of New Madrid
New Madrid, Missouri
March 16-18, 2012
will be no registration fee to take part in this event but you must be
registered so they know who is planning on attending. Unit portrayed
will be Co. C, 47th Illinois who served as Popes's escort at the time.
For those of you that would like to read up a little on what happened
here prior to the event, there are some sources out there that you
should be able to tap into. Island No. 10 and the New Madrid siege were
sandwiched in between Ft. Donelson and Shiloh so they tend to get
overshadowed if not downright ignored by many writers.

Battle of Perryville
Battle of Perryville Park, KY
Oct 5-6, 2012
This is one of the best preserved battlefields in the US. Some of the best large reenactments have been at Perryville in the past. There is a large push within the campaigner community to go as a large Federal battalion. This one is worth the trip to central Kentucky. Put on the little used blue suit, and enjoy a 150th event on the actual battlefield.POC: Jordan Roberts and Herb Coats
