IF you are a seasoned reenactor or a rookie we are need of your help to fill our ranks. We are a very family oriented unit that loves to have a good time with everyone. We do living histories at schools and fight on the battlefield. We are based in Southern IL, But have members all over IL. We attend events in Central and Southern IL, Western IN, all over KY and a few MO events. We are not against women fighting in the ranks, in fact we have 4 that do fight, we just ask that they do it as close as possible to the historical accounts. We welcome all historcal impressions to include Infantry, Artillery, Medical, Civilian and someday would want to put together a Cavalry unit. We do both Union and Confederate impressions. The units that are portrayed are 15th NW Ark CO G, 81st IL CO E, 1st Ark Artillery (Adam's Battary). We encourage members to do portray both sides equally but if you perfer one over the other that is fine we do have members that will not galvanize and that is your right. We are a fictional divison that was founded on two things "Leave the BS politics at home" and "Love for this hobby". All members of this unit have equal say to how the unit conducts itself. We believe rank is only good on the field. During meetings and off the field everyone is equal and has the same power as each other no matter what rank you are. If you are interested in seeing our unit and trying us out email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of events and come hang with us.
