Well since I am new to this group or have yet to post anything in
here I wanted to introduce myself and give a little background info.
My name is Joseph, am 24 and live in GA. I have studied the American
Civil War since I was 12 and have been a reenactor for 7 years. I
mainly portray a Western Theater Confederate or Federal soldier but
do the occasional Eastern theater thing and have to do any Tans-
Mississippi portrayals. I don't wish to discuss my personal life
too much on a public forum but feel free to PM through Yahoo
Messenger if you like to talk about that. As for as my
reenacting "career" goes I am more what you would call "progressive"
since I am always striving to better my impression to educate and
better represent my ancestors. I have attended the gamut of events
from your typical "corndog fest" up to the "stitch counter" stuff. I
am easy enough to get along with and will talk to just about anyone
and love to help anyone who wishes to be more accurate in their ACW
impressions. Just say HI sometime if you want to chat. Here are my
units I belong too
These guys are
mainstream/progressive with more going to the campaign side of
things. I currently serve as a Sergeant within the group. We are
also sponsoring an event, if you are in GA(or anywhere) we invite
you to attend.
my "mess" company which I started a few years ago. We are all
progressive minded and always on the look out for that event that
will let us better experience what our ancestors went through.
