Why We Do …….What We Do !

2016 Southeastern Rendezvous

Why do people get involved in historical re-enacting? There can be as many different reasons. It is a personal attraction to history, activities involved, cultural pursuits, interest in a historical battle or you just like to play dress up.

When it comes to the type of group that you join there are many decisions involved, depending on your historical time period of interest, how authentic you want to be and the monetary expenditure involved.

History is defined as: the study of past events, particularly in human affairs. eg. “medieval European history”

Historical re-enacting : Historical reenactment is an educational or entertainment activity in which people follow a plan to recreate aspects of a historical event or period. Wikipedia

Living history is an activity that incorporates historical tools, activities and dress into an interactive presentation that seeks to give observers and participants a sense of stepping back in time. Wikipedia

Cosplay, a portmanteau of the words costume play, is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character. Wikipedia

When joining one of the above groups you need to consider your reasons for joining, as some groups want to be historically accurate (living history), while others like some re-enactment groups are more flexible in their guidelines. Living historians make all their clothing by hand sewing, their tools and food are produced by historical means, While Reenactment groups will hand sew the visible stitching of garments, they may sew the hidden stitching on a sewing machine for durability reasons. So make in inquiries so you can find the right fit for you needs.

Good day everyone, have been remiss in updating the site. Trying to maintain supply chain, with the current bottlenecks in shipping and a whole bunch of new orders we are trying our best. If it is on the website it is still available. PM me with any wants and requests, I still have a supply of possibles bags, and related items.

Round Balls

Just added, we are now distributors for Hornady swaged bullets in various calibres. from .32 to 69 we have it all. Various weights, and sizes. Being swaged they have no spru, and no air pockets, for consistent accuracy. cost is 10.00 up to 50 Cal, and 15.00 from there up. Shipping is calculated at actual cost. Mix and match. As these are heavy, ordering in quantity will reduce shipping costs.

Just available

Send us your wants, we still have items arriving. These are selling well at various events, so we may be out of stock from time time.
