Welcome to reenactor.Net's 1800 to 1860 Time/Area. What is that exactly? Well, a lot really: the Napoleonic War, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War and the Crimean War. Quite a lot to cover, but quite important wars, as wars go.

1800-1860 Units and Groups
Hopefully we will have more listings and info as time goes on. Keep an eye on this T/A as we shall be giving it a face-lift and an update.
Napoleonic is very big in Europe, but still in its infancy in the United States. But... saying that, NapWar has the potential to be as big as U.S. Civil War reenacting. It has everything you could want in a reenactment... ;-)
War of 1812 is building up and since its bicentennial will be here soon, expect to see more of this exciting time period.
Mexican-American Waris small, but again, the numbers are growing -- if you live in the South-West United States, MexWar might be for you!
Crimean War is more popular in Europe, but again, something that is reenacted and an interesting time period.
All in all, a pretty exciting time period. Give it a look and PLEASE, if you find a link that doesn't work or a problem, let us know!
*Special thanks to Mr. Pendlebury (Napflags), for the use of his excellent flag art.
It's a place for customers to rate their experiences with vendors servicing the reenacting community. Good or bad, let's hear it. Vendor Feedback Reviews are posted only after reviewed by the webmaster. Positive reviews are posted as they are submitted, negative reviews are posted 2 weeks after submission. During this time, the vendor is sent the review in order to provide them ample time to provide us with a rebuttal. After 2 weeks if no rebuttal is received the review is posted. Vendors who do not recall the buyer are encouraged to make contact and work out the problem.
Spread the word! The RCG has not only helped other reenacting time periods by spreading the word about bad vendors and experiences, but it has also really helped new vendors get discovered and their businesses grow. What it really means is that if a vendor screws someone, then it will be out there for everyone to see. And yes, vendors CAN rebut feedback. Be polite, no flames and be professional!!
Some NapWar event photos so you may see just how exciting this time period is!
