Looking for a New Reenactment!
As many of you know we are no longer traveling to the 150th reenactment of Manassas this week. We are currently looking for a new reenactment to involve in our project!
We’re currently considering Shiloh or Antietam. Preferably we’d like to do a 150th battle in 2012. However, If anyone has a different suggestion for us we’re more than happy to consider! Do you know of a great event in 2012?

First Manassas on USPS Stamps!
USPS released Civil War 1861 stamps featuring Fort Sumter and First Manassas/ Bull Run. We couldn’t find them here in Los Angeles so we purchased them online. If you received any mail from us expect one of these guys to be on it! Do you have any of these yet? If so show us!
