Back to the Future II

A new schedule of events for the 2009 reenacting season. A few are missing dates but will be updated as soon as the information is released. However since most are repeat events on fixed weekends each year, it's safe to say there won't be many overlaps. Events marked with a (*) are east coast events and long shots but on my "trying" list for the season. After all, you never really know what will present itself. I did get to England last year after all!

  1. I was inspired by this posting of your schedule and finally buckled down and started finalizing my own schedule for this present year. But my question to you is what is the "100 Years on the Ohio" event in KY? Where is that held?

  2. Doctor,

    Here is the blurb from the wed site describing the event, which includes contact information. This will be my first year in attendance. I am very much looking forward to it.
