Reenacting is an odd hobby. No two ways about
that. "Hey, my life isn't nearly difficult enough. I know, I'll dress up
as someone in the past who had it much worse!" As I say, an odd hobby.
Never the less, it is one on my hobbies and this page is the place I will try
to place useful stuff for those interested in reenacting. For more thought on
the hobby, see my articles page.
First place I go for directions to a distant event. I find this site remarkably
The Yahoo Weather
Give it the city or zip code and viola! Instant weather report. Probably about
as reliable as the one you get at home, be careful!
The fonts I use for a Colonial look. Very nice, and reasonably priced.
Bob Sullivan's Drill
An excellent article on military drill for reenactors. Just because we are
hobbiests does not mean we should be awful.
Camp Chase Gazette
A great magazine for Civil War reenactors. Very good event listings.
A good place to read an insiders guide to reenacting. Mostly American Civil
War, very funny stuff even if you do not reenact the Civil War.
My primary unit. A good even keeled unit. Line Infantry only. Site has been recently updated and is well worth a look.
A unit representing the 64th Regiment of Foot, a British unit serving in
the American Revolution. Good looking unit, and nice folks.
New Englanders! Good guys in spite of it.
A great unit reenacting line infantry of the American Revolution.
An excellent unit of reenacted light infantry of the American Revolution.
Great unit with a great attitude.
Revolutionary war reenactors in the mid-west. Site has some very good resources
Got my start in reenacting here in 1979 or so. Good folks, but a little
scattered in focus. Some very good reenactors among quite a few folks I would
classify as "other".
The Civil War Reenactor's Site
A good starting resource site for those looking for information on reenacting
the American Civil War.
Another site for general US Civil War resources. Lots of good event info
and wrap ups.
Reenactor.net is a good general purpose site to look for units of all periods.
A good site for reenactors in the United Kingdom. A wide variety of periods
Warning: Always check the accuracy of an item before
you buy it. Find someone experienced to check with or do your own research.
This will save you much money and embarassment over the years. No sutler is
perfect, you must be careful!
Avalon Forge (Email Address)
Misc. camp supplys and personal gear. John White is a long time reenactor
and a good guy. (and he is in the First Maryland so he gets a free plug
for hooking me on the unit!)
Jas. Townsend & Son
If you want to be ultra-hardcore, shop elsewhere for your clothes, otherwise
friendly folks who have a broad selection of Rev. War and Colonial clothing
and gear. Best sutler web site I have seen.
G. Gedney Godwin
Excellent gear at a premium price. Their catalog was a great resource when
I started reenacting Rev. War in the eighties.
Publishers of period books, document kits, and reference works. Most are done
in appropriate period style. A valuable company to reenactors of early American
Burnley and Trowbridge Co.
108 Druid Drive
Williamsburg, Va. 23185
Fabric sales. A great resource at very fair prices.
P.O. Box 39

Call Joe 724-329-4971
Shoes that fit, last, are comfortable. The bad news is the wait, approaching
a year. Well worth waiting for.
Hamilton Dry Goods
Nice folks with a good web site, they do play music when you load the page
if you browser supports it. I hate that, but some love it, hope you like 'Rocky
If you know of Units that should be here, or
of resources that are helpful to reenactors please send them along. The site
isn't meant to be a event listing as it is updated infrequently, but if you
send events along and the timing is good I will put them up as well.
