REENACTOR INFORMATION

What to Expect

Reenactors will come to the Haessly Homestead in the southern Appalachian Mountain Valleys with scenic camping and streams running through the battlefield.  A closeness of family and friends as well as some modern amenities as well as primitive is you wish them.

Battles

All Laurel Home Guard rules will apply on the field and in camps.

Battles will be coordinated through the event coordinator and the battlefield commanders.  Please defer and address your questions at officer's call to the event coordinator and the 2 overall commanders.

Powder Bounty will be paid to the first two full size cannons and the first two mountain howitzers that are pre-registered.

Horses will be checked for Coggins upon arrival on site.

::PLEASE BE ADVISED:::

This is a running battle between Infantrymen who were turned into Cavalrymen under US Col. Streight and Cavalrymen under CS Gen. Forrest.   Brush up on your skirmish interval tactics and quick loading skills.  Cavalry battles were quick, hot, fierce, and heavy on movements and action.

Camping

Camping is set up along a hill and pond with running well water within walking distance of even the furthest camps.  If you wish to camp more primitive or hardcore there is plenty of space on the backside of the battlefield between creeks.  Firewood will be available in abundance and since it's September, we shouldn't be FREEZING!  Port-O-Johns will be available all around the vending areas and just outside of the camping areas. You don't have to stop having fun but please be considerate of others during camp quiet times.

Registration

Pre-register your unit and numbers of soldiers and civilians below online!

There will be a $6 ($1 for bank fees) registration fee if you pre-register and pay before September 3rd. $9 for walk-ons so we can bring you a fantastic meal on Saturday evening before our Grand Dance. 

***Please have each of your unit members download and fill out a waiver and bring it with them so we can cut down on registration time and have more fun time!***

Battlefield Commanders

"I have never, on the field of battle, sent you where I was unwilling to go myself; nor would I now advise you to a course which I felt myself unwilling to pursue. You have been good soldiers, you can be good citizens."
