Arkansas Living History Association Discussion Group
I just found out this is an actual organization and not just a group of people! I have been doing Civil War Reenacting for about 5.5 years, but have turned my focus to WWII recently; Mostly due to the fact that most Civil War Events happen on weekends I have to work.
I have started a Boy Scout Venture Unit that will primarily focus on WWII Reenacting, and hopefully branching into other eras once we grow and become comfortable with the era we have chosen so far.
I have looked at the certification process and was wondering when the next workshop for that might be, so that I might try to fit it into my hectic schedule.
I'm excited to be apart of this group and further history!
