Web Site July 12-14, 2019 - Dinsmore Homestead - Burlington, Kentucky - We resuurected this event last season and those that went had a great time. We will enjoy camp life, drill and maybe even some marching in the surrounding woods. In 1839, James & Martha Dinsmore purchased approximately 700 acres in Boone County, Kentucky. He and his family, which included daughters, Isabella Dinsmore, Julia Dinsmore, and Susan Dinsmore, settled there, and raised sheep and grew grapes and willows for a basket-making business overseen by German immigrants. Web Site September 27-29, 2019 - Caesars Creek - Waynesville, Ohio - We returned to this village last year after many years of being away. We had a small contingent , but we had a very nice time. A new event coordinator has taken over the program and she is a very reenactor friendly. This will be our last opportunity to field a good sized company this year and we really hope as many of you as possible will make it out. It's not a far drive for most of our members. Web Site

Get a taste of civilian life with period games, music, dancing and much more. The village is a wonderful place to get the feel of 19th century life. We hve been here a number of times over the years and it always proves to be a lot of fun. Its central location should help more of our company out. Web Site August 9-11, 2019 - Hale Farm - Bath, Ohio - This one is a typical village type of event but on a very large scale. The Army of Ohio participates in this event nearly every year and we would work with them. Preferably as a company of our own. Moe information and registration is listed on their website. Web Site October 26, 2019 - Linden Grove Cemetery - Covington, Kentucky - We have helped out this cemetery in the past with their Halloween program which is a really neat experience. Visitors come in on wagons, in fog, and we Civil War soldiers come to life and interact with them. Are we ghosts? Maybe. This is a one evening event that promotes history at different levels. Web Site
