    Default HELP! Looking for Colorado unit to join

    Hello, I am new to this website as well as reenacting and am looking for a unit in Colorado to join ( if such a unit does exist). Since I am new I will tell you a little about myself. I am 17, have been shooting and hunting since I could remember. I am very interested in the history of the civil war and since being introduced to reenacting on a school trip to Washington D.C I have been very interested in joining. I have read up a little on the required gear and some basic rules. If possible I would like to join either a Calvary or sharpshooter unit as I am planning on purchasing a sharps replica and would like to use that, and if a Calvary unit is available I have several very broke horses I could use. Any help is much appreciated thank you.

    I'm not trying to be a jerk, just give you your first lesson: "Calvary" is a hill. "Cavalry" is a guy on a horse.

    Whereabouts in Colorado are you? I'm pretty certain that there are groups in Wyoming too. Google 'em and I think you'll find some good information. Good luck!
