    Default Looking to join

    I am looking for an artillery unit in the TN area to join. I am currently doing living history @ National Battlefield Parks as part of artillery demos, so I have been trained up to NPS standards. I would like to join a unit that does both reenacting and living history within driving distances of SE TN. I have many follow on skill sets and a strong back ground in medicine. Contact me via email - elk11060@yahoo.com.

    elk,

    If you are progressively minded you may wish to contact the Mossy Creek Mess, who is a member group in SCAR. Their website is linked at www.scarreenactors.com They are based in E. TN.

    Good luck,
    Jim Butler

    If you are trained by NPS for crew drill, I caution you to watch units that are "certified" by the Loyal Train of Artillery guys. They do not do proper period crew drill like the NPS trains from Hunt, Barry and French, they have their own drill that they made up that is not period correct. Drives me nuts everytime I watch them.
