I started this here because I believe it would end up here anyway. ;)

I know some out there do other times, so does anyone do pirates?
I ask because I know someone who just attended the tall ship sailing race in Beaufort, NC and they had a pirate "encampment". I am told that it looked like fun. The main activites seemed to consist of drinking "grog" and grabbing "wenches". I was just wondering where to sign up! :confused: :rolleyes:

Sounds like more than a few CW units that I've seen in the past. Some even go as far as to send up the Jolly Roger.

I wish I was joking.

Well, I don't do pirates, but some of us in west Texas do pre-war frontier regulars. (I do infantry... and yes the infantry fought the Indians out here along with the cavalry.) There are several pre-war forts in this part of the state and many of them have annual living history events. Most are time line with impressions from the Texas Revolution up thru the Spanish-American War. After years of doing mainly War Between the States events, this is a nice change.
Of course the "gunfighter", types are poular in the west and post war cavalry is very big.

Hallo!

I tried, but in the hot Midwest sun, the octopus on my face was stinky and slimy. So, I took up WWI.

All: Other time period, Yes, but as my horse gets seasick, we swim or ford but do not go asailing. I do F&I, 2d PA Light Horse; RevWar, 4th Continential Light Dragoons, and in the Napoleonic time frame of 1800 -1815 I do both the Kings 15th Light Dragoons Hussar and the Emperors 7th French Hussars. I also do a civilian scout in the War of 1812. All these time frames are small with the cavalry being a very minor part. And as the unit I ride with is in Ohio I have not worn the RevWar kit in 4 years. It has also been 2 years since I have done F&I or 1812. But, I do Napoleonic twice or 3 times a year, and have since 1996.

I do this event in late august every year in Baldwin county, Alabama. Hotter than you know what, and plenty of mosquitos, but this is one that civilians are a must have. I get to take part instead of watching, and the indians have learned that a certain bunch of white women can be sneaky, we know we have to die, but we don't make it easy for them. The event T shirts say" you havn't lived till you've died at Fort Mims", made a lot of good friends that I just see at this event.

Arrr! It's high time a "real" seafaring man chimed in here. You're all worthless and weak! As usual, pirates stick together until they actually find the treasure, at which time they fall to "sticking" each other. So the key is to keep looking, drinking, wenching, but never find. Curt - did you get in the wrong place at a Red Wings game?
