As did I.
As the living history crowd launches its 2016 campaign, here's some food for thought ...
Still lots of wear in mine, purchased in 1999. Thanks to Robert Land for keeping legions of infantry soldiers on the march.
Set of tent poles for dog tent arrived promptly and appear to be very much as advertised. I look forward to putting them to use. Thanks so much, Anthony!
Sent you a PM, Anthony. If I'm going to be camping in the same vicinity as Mr. Strawfoot, I want to appear as sojerly as possible.
Excellent. Will give this a close read. Even has dimensions of cartridge paper and instructions for assembling. Thanks for sharing the link.
I echo the relief that you and your family are OK. Who knows what kind of craziness was afoot?
But that begs the question, where was the guard posted? If there were no sentries I'm thinking this...
"Edgar Zabriskie was ... one of the first purchasers of a lot in Bemis Park, a new residential suburb in the 1880s. The Edgar Zabriskie Residence is located in the Bemis Park neighborhood of Omaha,...
In preparation for living history at a local high school Sunday, will clean up my federal uniform a bit. (We're celebrating anniversary of Abe's birthday.) After supper tonight, I will scoop up a...
Ross, I was in the same boat 2 weeks ago -- sergeant's chevrons needed, but no responses on the fora -- but I found a consigned set on StoneyBrook's website for a great price. Chris was great to work...
Have avoided rank/responsibility for as long as I could ...
I need a set of sergeant's stripes by Feb. 10. I am looking for the arched style, "non-neon blue" infantry chevrons from a quality maker,...
Interesting news on the web this morning re Medal of Honor found and returned.
Bravo to the Dance Foundation! Here's a snapshot taken the night before the BGA event in June.
Good thoughts, Tom.
I vote for Option 2.
Those who appreciate the early Parkers (I have a pard who owns one, while I bought a very early Armi '42 Springfield from the same source) will note your "last full measure" re...
Is this a Traveling Lodge? I would be interested in attending if my captain allows it. Guess I better pack my dues card. I'm in the South at this point.

What color is the cravat? Sent a PM -- looking for one for one of the BGA150 impressions. Either way, see you next Thursday.

Are you wearing the belt with the buckle directly over your belly button, at the period natural waist? If so, try cinching up one or even two notches and the added pressure should keep your...
Uniform on hold. Thanks for looking.
I ordered the federal red chasseur trowsers as a 37 inch natural waist (at the belly button) but appears they would fit anyone from size 33-38 without appearing ill-fitting. (A larger...
Just an observation -- I did a quick review of the recommended suppliers on zouave units' websites and found new red federal chasseur trowsers of the same quality as what I'm offering are going for...
Here are pics of the Wheat's Tiger trowsers and canteen for sale, as mentioned in my earlier post.
I have higher-resolution versions of these if you want me to email you.
Thanks for looking!
Greetings, lads. Need some reenacting cash, so I'm selling off some gear I seldom get a chance to use: here are uniform parts for 165th NY federal zouaves and partial uniform for CSA Wheat's Tiger...
Just wondering -- did the professionals use any metal detectors or even review the aerial X-rays done in the past decade to reclaim objects in the area before the bulldozers...
Too bad we don't have a super-sugar-daddy to buy us a temporary "brickyard" on the edge of the town. Someday I'd like to portray the 154th NY's action on what's now Costner Avenue.
