I will be at the GAC event because that is where the battalion I recently joined is going. (Unfortunately for me)

David Burt (co-author of the Supplier to the Confederacy series of books) will be coming over from the UK to
do Gettysburg next summer. I told him do "BGA."

indguard, you could fall in with another group if you wanted to do BGA.

Todd (IndGuard) I'm sure we could find you a home in the Army of the Ohio over at the BGA event
We're here to save you Mess
IndGuard. I know how you feel. My main Battalion also went GAC. But, I had to break ranks for the sake of the hobby. (not a fun thing to do ) Falling in with a different Battalion for the event I can recommend two if your interested. PM me. (I believe we are in the same battalion).
Neither. Gettysburg isn't necessarily an either/or type of event.
"While the original battle [Gettysburg] may arguably be considered the epicenter of the history of the war, the GAC reenactment is not the epicenter of the hobby. To confuse or equate the two is unfortunate. - Bernard Biederman, 6 July 2012
"Authenticity conflicts occur when reenactors from one end of the spectrum attend events at the other end of the spectrum then try to impose their own standards instead of event standards."
I have to say, if I could afford to go to two in a row, I most certainly would (and I know that I have a welcome billet in the Army of Ohio with Colonel Minton, thanks Bob). I think BGA would fit my personal sensibilities better. But, I have to make a choice and I just joined this battalion only last year, so I sort of have to do that duty. Sigh.
Yuma gonna luv it
The Cumberland Guard, the Black Hats and the Military Department of Mississippi are attending GAC.
