posting to this list, there is *no* requirement that you be a
reenactor to be a member.
There is not even a requirement that you be a *spectator* as some list
members live as far away from "1812 reenactments land" as New Zealand
There is no requirement that you have any specific special connection
to the War of 1812 (whether reenactor/living historian/professional
interpreter/spectator/historian/sutler/ancestor worshipper, etc.) -
all you need is a computer and the curiousity about some aspect of the
war that would induce you to make the required keystrokes and mouse
clicks to join up.
Only spammers are not welcome.

- How about me?
I have re-enacted and reenacted... and hope to again shortly... but haven't
in a long while... and don't see it happening within the next year or so...
but I look after websites of re-enactors and reenactors... does that count?
Heck, due to a lack of vehicle, I'm not even a great spectator right now!
So, I guess that makes me a combination has-been and wanna-be... but not
currently an active re-enactor.

Please take some time to visit my personal website...
- Gary and I are no longer re-enactors (difficulties with my pain
management), but will remain on the list as our love of history continues
brightly. As Jim has said, there are those of us who don't participate in
re-enactments. Just because you don't see us on the field doesn't mean we
don't have a keen interest in the focus of the group. :-)
Back to lurking.
