Does anyone here know of any history-heavy events in the northern Alabama/southern Tennessee area? I would love to attend some, but it seems that all the events I've been to are really just jokes as far as authenticity. Any help would be appreciated!
There are more quality events for civilian participation in the Southeast than meet the eye.
The ones that I am referring to are typically not advertised and are spread by word of mouth/e-mail, etc.
Earlier this Summer I did list B-ATL, where a lot of quality folks gather at a specific location within the event structure. It is nice to be in an environment entirely free from individuals that simply don't care.
When you make contacts, you then find out about opportunities that are not advertised to the re-enactment mainstream crowd.
There are some events that I attend that I would simply not list on an open forum. I would not want to be the person responsible for polluting an already great event and ruin the efforts of folks who want to keep their activities on a very high quality plateau.
