    The acting was pretty amateurish and the dialogue painfully forced. I liked the last half hour or so when the battle was going on. It wasn't terrible. I've made myself sit through worse Civil War...

    Less is more in a lot of areas of our hobby. The acquisition of more stuff, or setting up by the book, or by the regulation is sometimes the " wall" to separate the uncommitted goats from the...

    Noah: Amen! It's good to read somebody in the reenactor medical side of the house chime in. That's the direction that I was trying to point in as well.

    I realize the title and purpose of this thread are to help with a steward impression, but really can you help talk him out of it? This is one of those noncombatant specialist impressions that people...

    Not necessarily, but the more I look at it, the more I think he's likely Confederate. That kept looks Confederate.

    I meant no offense. Sorry. Over the years, the forum has been scammed from time to time. Just being careful. Thanks for popping back in. As Mrs. L. Suggests, check your email preferences. I had to...

    What a garb, only buttoning the top button! That's such a nice clear image, but I have trouble making it into a veteran reserve jacket too, for the reasons Curt listed. He might be a Confederate. His...

    A $1500 sale offered in the first post an individual makes? Something's fishy.

    Admittedly, I'm not a shell jacket authority, but I've never seen anything suggesting such a distinction. Furthermore, everything I do know about the civil war argues against it. I'm sure you can...

    Uh, I don't think I'd try those rations for the event. Might leave you with a grumpy disposition. But at least you won't have to carry a haversack. :)

    I've been reenacting the civil war since 1986 (and the 18th century since 1976). I have no intention of quitting. Should God allow that I am in physical shape to do so, I will be trailing a musket....

    There might not be. Real blood stains don't come out; Clyde Barrow's pants still have visible blood stains and they were washed, cut down and worn by Blanche's kids for years after his death. Stage...

    Aluminium foil and super glue are your best friends for that kind of modding. If you have confederates with slouch hats, you can trim off the Bruins then glue the foil side pieces on in their place....

    Mississippi infantry sometimes wore frocks. The example I've seen was Jean cloth, with plain collar and cuffs. You could put them in slouch hat or you could model tricorn hats. If you have federals...
