On September 6th-8th, 2012, the Southern Division will be hosting " Maryland, my Maryland", the 150th Anniversary Reenactments of the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam.
The event will be held about 1 mile from Fox's Gap, and privately owned property, and is sponsored by the Washington County Visitors Bureau, Central Maryland Heritage League, Britney's Hope Foundation and in coordination with the 150th Maryland Campaign Committee.
The event will be like those in the past I have organized, from Fire on the Mountain, 2000, To the Gates of Washington, Summer of '62, September Storm, At High Tide and Return to Manassas, with correct force ratios, unit specific impressions and actions and the dedication to portraying September, 1862, with the utmost authenticity, honor and respect.
Shortly the event website will be up, and registration opens in November.
Mike Lavis will be leading the Federal Forces, and I will be heading the States Rights Force, with Todd Harrington the Sutler Coordinator.
This is an all volunteer effort, with all proceeds going to CMHL, for their efforts in preserving South Mountain, and Britney's Hope to continue their work assisting with the adoption of special needs children.
More information will be available shortly, but I wanted to get this out so folks can put it on their calendars.
There will also shortly be an official press release from Washington County, Maryland, and the 150th Maryland Campaign Committee.
I look forward to seeing you there.
