I am interested in info on events for the late 63 to 65 period to be held in 2007 and 2008 that involved USCT. I think we need to expand our horizons and get away from doing the same old events every year. Feel free to email me with more information at andrew.jarvi@gmail.com

I agree, There was much happening around Petersburg that never gets reenacted--wonder why?

Omar and his guys from Tulsa can always use some help in portraying the 1st Kansas Colored Infantry at Honey Springs.

Phil,

Do you have contact info for Omar or any of his guys? Interestingly enough we have never heard of this event or this unit being portrayed.

Andrew:

Could you email me off-line concerning an event we are contemplating for April 2008?

Here's a nutshell history of the 1st Kansas Colored:

Google will give you many more websites.

Some history of the Battle of Honey Springs:

It's been several years since I have reenacted down in Oklahoma, and don't have any contact info for Omar. But you might get some info for him and some info on the next go-round of the reenactment (either 2007 or 2008, I can never see to remember their rotation) from the park:
