- Hi All-
I'm new to reenacting the War of 1812, but have been a Revolutionary War reenactor since 1976. Have been a member of H.M.64th Regiment of Foot all that time, I am still quite active and am a Captain commanding a company of infantry.
I reside in the North Carolina Piedmont and am working on a rifle frock to complete an impression of a militiaman of the Wake Volunteer Guards. Since I was actually reenacting during the Rev War Bicentennial, I do get the privilege of portraying a "76" man. I'll be regaling the younger members of the unit about how I was at the front line at Hannah's Cowpens, and how we sent Banny Tarleton running!
I look forward to gathering a lot of information from you in my first serious foray outside the period of the Revolution. I hope to meet some of you in the flesh at upcoming reenactments.

Hello all,My name is Jim Whitley. I'm a longtime reenactor from Charlotte, North Carolina, but new to 1812. My home is the 12th Infantry, a new regiment forming in the mid-Atlantic. I appreciate being allowed to join and hope to absorb much of your collective wisdom in the months ahead.
