The 6th OVI is based out of Cincinnati and we're having our annual company meeting January 26th at Camp Dennison.
The 6th is a Federal, progressive-mainstream unit that attends events ranging from the big nationals, to smaller living histories, to providing troops for local ceremonies. We're a member unit of the Army of the Ohio but have also recently fallen in with the Western Federal Blues and the USV. We've adopted the Perryville battlefield and every year travel down there to help restore it to its original condition, as well as helped raise thousands of dollars toward battle flag restoration.
If you're interested drop me a PM and I'll get you the contact info. Even if you end up with a different unit than us, show up at the meeting and you can get a small taste of what we're about. Hope to see you there.
