Hi. My name is Dave Custer. (yes Custer) I am a 16 year old reenactor (imagine that!:lol: ) blacksmith. I have been reenacting for a little over a year, and I have been doing iron work for over two now. Our family has a 60 acre farm in South Central Ky. where we raise all our own meats (chicken, pork, beef) and attempt to do the same with all our other food.
Other than farming and smithing, I enjoy fencing (not the post with planks in between, the one with dull swords!:rolleyes: ) and thinking about building a small traditional wooden boat.
Well, that's me; Hello all!

Hmmm....The Hamilton Guard...Who's the Hamilton Gaurds C.O. now these days???
"An unofficial member..." I think that is the first I have heard of that title used on here. You could've said that at this time you don't belong to a unit, but have been known associate with the Hamilton Guard.;) ....Just hacking on you kid!

Hamilton Guard is captained by another guy named Dave. I've only met him once and I don't know his last name. 1st Searge. is Rob! No last name, once again. Capt. rarely shows, (back trouble I think) so Rob normally leads from the 1st Searge. position! I'm wanting to join up with them this spring. They've individually accepted me as a member but not as a company. I have permission to use them as my company, (regestration purposes) but I'd like to maintain my independance for a while before I join. :lol:
Oh and I love your sign off! :lol:

Hello David:

Greetings from Alabama and the 33rd Ala.Infantry Co.E, Montgomery, Ala.
I have relatives over in Somerset (the Powells). Our unit was at Mill Springs a couple of years ago and had a grand time. Wonderful country up there, except everything seems to be uphill.
I checked out your family webpage. It was refreshing to see that good, solid folk are still around. Keep up the good work and your interests.

Thanks for checking out the site.
We still lived in Ga. during the Mill Springs event. We were up here doing some work and had to leave the day it started!:( What a bummer!
