Friends of Fort Mims,
This is to advise you that the Fort Mims Restoration Association (FMRA) has
changed the date of this year's event. Originally it was proposed for the
weekend of August 30-31. While that would put it on the original date it
took place, that also is Labor Day weekend this year. Too many other events
taking place at that time would decrease our reenactor participation.
Therefore, the date has been moved back to August 23-24. Please mark that
your calendars and spread the news near and far!
We have informed the FMRA of our desire to once again perform the Burnt Corn
Creek skirmish in the morning each day and the Fort Mims fight in the
afternoon. In that way, we tell the whole story (including what
the whole affair), and we keep the scenario fresh and varied.
We are actively recruiting real, honest to goodness Indians as hard as ever.
Any of you with any tribal connections, please lend a hand. Put them in
touch with us.
This year Horseshoe Bend will not conflict with our event. That should free
up more militia to join in the fray.
Interest in the time period continues to grow. Hope to see you there for
190th anniversary event!
Battle of Fort Mims
