Title: Welcome!
Post by: Sturmkatze on January 18, 2007, 01:32:22 AM
Hello, so, you've just joined our new Living History Forum and perhaps there's not too many postings yet... or, perhaps you've not seen anyone you know or just feel intimidated :-0 Well, don't! We all had to start somewhere... Just jump right into the forums. If you don't see a thread you like in the forums, start a new one!! Just try and put it in the right Forum. As to content... who cares, as long as it's not illegal, hateful, racist or something like that: GO FOR IT! To make things even better, it takes everyone contributing. Hey, wanna see a catagory for period recipes or something? We can do it, simply ask. Or post them in "Off Topic" This Forum can be whatever you want it to be!!

We are trying to make this a fun place for our members! We want you to have a good experience rediscovering old friends and perhaps, making new ones here. And, for that matter, we've added a "mod" to let you buy people a beer!  ;) IF they have entered their paypal name in their profile (right now the field says ":" instead of PayPal (we're working on it)), you can buy 'em a beer! Anyway, once they've added their paypal, you'll see a beer mug by their name in posts.  ;D Just click it and you can buy them a beer! I hope to have this easier to find and use real soon, but it IS there now to use!

Something you might also want to do is to make your profile a bit more complete. We really want to see your real name in your signature (you can call it your "muggle" name). You can upload a photo to go w/ your posts if you'd like. Smile, breathe, it'll be okay! You can send me a PM (private message) by clicking the "PM" button below my posts.

A last note: Before you take off looking through the Forums, how about going and reading The Rulez at:http://www.reenactor.net/index.php?topic=4.0 (http://www.reenactor.net/index.php?topic=4.0)

If you'll notice there's a conspicuous absence of Ancient stuff. That's because as soon as I find the mod for it, I will port all the Ancient stuff over to Roman Army Talk which has forums for all of that :-) Jasper, the owner is a great guy and has helped me a LOT. We aren't going to compete them.

Oh, are we doing introductions? Let's do introductions...

I started doing medieval (1066) living history in 1990 with Markland Medieval Mercenary Militia... also did 1485 Swiss for a little while, 1529 Landsknecht (German) for five years and have been in the SCA on and off since 1992. Haven't done any in a while and haven't updated the Middle Ages or Celtic r.Net pages in a while but Marsh won't let me escape. I did the bulk of the Middle Ages section.

I work in a law firm, play roller derby or skate 4x a week, like taking photos and am putting them on a Smugmug account now. Am getting my armor together to start doing SCA heavy combat. Odds are one of these hobbies is going to break my bones... with my luck it will be the photography  :-X

I would like to do WWII living history when I can find the money for it and decide if I want to hang out with the Axis or Allies.

Oh, and I'm female, if you couldn't tell from the picture.

Greetings cats and kittens! I've been a lurker on many groups, Yahoo and otherwise...so when I read that this forum was finally open I couldn't help but rush right over. :)

Just a brief rundown on what brings me here, I have interests in pre-Christian history up to the Viking Age, mainly just that of the Northern Europeans and early to mid 20th century German history. I've been interested in reenacting both, but due to life's responsibilities I haven't been able to commit to anything including any specific groups. However, in a few months, I will have a lot more free time on my hands to do with as I please...well, when I'm not playing the stay-at-home-dad role. ;D

I've had an interest in WW2 Germany for quite sometime and have only begun fully researching various areas of this era about 18 months ago. I'm nearing a complete Heer impression but have slowed my progress owing to a shift in paths. Thanks to a prior criminal conviction years ago, I cannot own a firearm which leaves me as an unsuitable candidate for most reenacting groups. So I've decided to focus on WW2 Airsoft Reenacting instead, with hopes of adding more authenticity to this hobby than what is commonly expected...along with finding more stuff to argue with Marsh about. ;)

Hi,

I'm Tom May, Founder member of the Great War Society (UK based).
Generally signing myself as either "Tom the Walrus" or "Tom (in London)"
I've been involved in LH since anout 1974/5, starting with the Napoleonic Association and then the English Civil War Society.

Hello,

got this site from a myspace group. So far I like the different era's in one place.
lets see...

I do mostly 18th century re-enacting right now.
I'm with two groups one is divided into a bunch of parts, but are part of the same group (confusing)
I am with the 6th ct regiment
and the other is with the Sons of the American Revolution. With that I'm a major of the Connecticut Line (second in command of ct SAR color guard's) and Captain of Col. Huntington's Regiment.
I was just voted president of a branch (not really re-enacting, but the color guard is for the branch)

The second most active is not really re-enacting
Western Swordsmanship Technique and Research A German school of fencing. We mostly do longsword. The school is taken from judicial combat training schools around Germany average date is 1480ad learning from Ringecks translations of Leichnehaur (I'm really am bad with spelling)

Besides those I joined a viking re-enactment group that doesn't really exist, we've had on meeting and made clothes and got weapons, but haven't gone to any events yet.
Also joined the SCA nothing with that except went to Pennsic.

I also sew stuff, make stuff with wood and metal and sit on the computer looking for random things to help with projects.

I think that's good for now

Hey Hi all,

This forum is a great idea and it seems like so far I am at least familiar with most of the members having been on the WH list now for about 5 years.

This will also be a great way to keep in touch with the other areas of reenacting that I have connections with ( too many...)

I have been involved in one way or another with American Civil War for the last 22 years (boy that is hard to believe...) now I am part of the USNLP and portray a sailor of the "brownwater" navy. USS Rattler. I also have done Great War, with the boys from the Keystone State 28th Division. ( that is quite an experience.) WWII is my big interest of late, and I have been doing US infantry as a dog-face of the 99th Division and the "Old Reliables" of the 47 Infantry, 9th Division. I also enjoy the Axis side, and have a complete Heer PzG.impression together and have been fascinated by the idea of the Luftwaffe Feld Divisionen and their poor unlucky life. That would be an interesting impression.

Anyway enough of my story. If anyone has a lead on a good Heer unit in the Ohio area shoot me a line, or if anyone is looking into doing LW FD in this area I would be interested in helping out.

Thanks all, I look forward to enjoying the forum!

Lee Drake  :)

Hey there! Great another forum!! The name is Marcus and I'm with the 21st Panzer in Southern California. I've been reenacting different time periods since I was 15 to include CW, WW1 and WW2. I will admit I'm a forum addict! I love how much one can learn from others and think it's a great idea to use forums for that.  Married with 3 kids and needless to say a very understanding wife (who I've actually gotten to come out and play with us as a Heer Helferin and/or civilian for WW2). Unfortunately I have a desk jockey job now and I'm on a computer all day so you'll see me hanging around various forums to break the monotony of the day.  Looking forward to meeting new people and I'm sure I'll run into other familiar "faces". Great Job Marsh!

Hello all!

Usually I don't post introductions on forums, but what the heck. I have been involved in American Civil War reenacting for the past few years and as a citizen of course, I love it.  But the ACW has been a obsession since I was little girl, what can I say I was an odd child. I love reading journals of time period, collecting photos of the era, original children's clothing is what I mainly have right now in my small collection, and so on. I am a member of the Ladies' Soldier's Friend Society based out of Nashville, TN. and a small civilian group here in Alabama. I am also the annoying older sister of four younger siblings and I will be starting university in the fall.

Regards,

I've been involved in various forms of reenacting/living history since 1989. In the past I've done American Civil War, Indian Wars, Old West (civilian), and WWI. Currently, I'm focused on doing US Cavalry for the period 1904-1918 and hopefully I'll be taking my horse with me to more events this year.  ;D

Thank you - my name is Faye Dufour, and I live in the greater New Orleans area.  Before losing everything in Katrina, I reenacted in a variety of periods ranging from ancient Rome up to WWII.  Major concentration was on War of 1812 and American Civil War.  Attached to Plauche's Battalion (War of 1812), and 8th Louisiana (Boone's  Battery) for Civil War.  When doing my impression of a Catholic nun (Ursuline in War of 1812 and Mercy nun in Civil War), my group was the St. Alphonsus Catholic Field Chapel.

Look forward to chatting with others in the hobby, and perhaps re-connecting with old friends who I have met at events in the past.

Well Hello There Everyone!

Just logged in to the chat.  What a great idea!

Intro about myself.  I'm Lisa.  I've been 'reenacting' for over 20 years.  Started at the Ren Faire in Oswego, NY and continued up and down the time line.  When I came out to the midwest, I hooked up with a Wild West group called The Kishwaukee Valley Vigilance Committee.  We've been doing Wild West impressions since 1997.  Some of the members are now sailing with the crew of the Archangel during the Golden Age of Pyracy.

I've attended RF1 and RF2.  Had a blast and can't wait for RF3 & RF4!  Look forward to meeting most of you...if not all of you!

Hail the Hall!

Just a note to say hello.  I am a Viking re-enactor that travels the Mid-west region of the United States with my longboat Yrsa.  I have a webpage with a further explanation and pics for those interested here:  www.vikingsamonline.com

I associate with several viking/dark ages re-enactment groups across the U.S.  Not because they like me or because of my personality, they just like the Yrsa! LOL  ;)

We are continuing construction on Norstead, a Viking Farmstead based on Hedeby in 1050, here on my land in Northeast Missouri.  Further information for the interested can be found here:  www.norstead.org .  A fantastic news piece was done on our grand opening event and is on Youtube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLh_iTS6jqI   

I hope to meet new people and learn new things here on this forum.

SturmKatze;
         Thanks for the welcome! I'm only new to this forum. I have been involved in living history for years, 25!
I have three time periods that I do. Span-Am, the Great War and World War II. One of my new interests is
WW2 airsoft. In Span-Am I do the U.S. 9th INF, a group of us out of Indiana. For WWI I do 49th Co. 5th Marines.
And WWII I'm with the U.S. 70th Tank Battalion, Yes I drive a tank! an M5A1 Stuart, but most of the time
I'm at the wheel of a Dodge weapons carrier. I live in the Chicago area down by Joliet.
My question is anyone out there into the WW2 airsoft thing and can anyone help me repair my Thompson,
I need parts. It's the M1A1. I have another one but it's the M1928A1.
I hope that I can be an important part of this forum, 25 years of reenacting I think I may have alittle knowledge.
As they say in the armour ranks KEEP RIDING.

Mostly interested in WWI American Forces. Thought about wearing my Grandfathers uniform in reenactments, but he was 5' 6" and I am 6' 1". He was AEF 7th Division 55th HQ. Co. and was wounded while relieving the 26th Division at the front. That was about the 5th of November, 1918 and spent the next 6 months in hospitals before coming home.

So, I'm a historical costuming geek.  While not (yet) a reenactor, I attended ReenactorFest 1, 2, and 3 as a squire for Autumn Tree Armored Combat Company.  And you folks are starting to rub off on me.  So, I figured I'd join the forums and do a little lurking.

And if any of y'all are from Massaschusetts and do Landskenct, Tudor, or medival re-enacting, I'd love to get to know you!

I've done SCA, WH, and Roman. And dabbled in CW and Rev War. Maybe I'm spread a little thin but I can't think of anything more fun...that can be done in public.
Last event I went to was Reenactor Fest (as a Roman).  It felt like I had stumbled on a crosstime saloon!
Since I've never been to a timeline type of event before, this was a real thrill.
Anyway, I want to get to lookin around so thats all for now.

Cheers,
Kreuzer

Howdy Y'all
Name's Jefferson.
I have been involved in medieval reenacting for about 15 years and am looking into other eras.
I think it would be interesting to produce a series of impressions faithful to a single regiment,For instance a highlander of the 93rd reg't from founding in 1800 to the Korean conflict ca. 1953. I really think think this would allow a personal view of the evolution of warfare.
Any thoughts?

Hello-

I am a member, Vice Chair,  of the Badger State Chapter (Wisconsin) of the 82nd Airborne Division Association. I also edit the Chapter's newsletter, Badger Airborne News. I was a Paratrooper with the 501st Airborne Battle Group, 82nd Abn Div from 1960-63.

Our Chapter is possibly organizing Airborne Days in Wisconsin next July. We are interested in bringing in some Airborne reenactor groups for this proposed event.

Can you direct me to those groups?



ATW,

Tom Laney

Hi @ all!
I'm Magali (everyone knows me as Hoppit), PR of the recently formed flemish reenactmentgroup Milites Templi. We do the Templar period, but we're still young and working to get all the stuff. We're looking to go abroad a bit more, Belgium doesn't have a lot fairs of our period. If you have suggestions for multi period events (or better, our period :) ), please do let me know! The webpage looks great, so you'll see me popping around here from time to time ;).
Oh, yes I do know I suck in English grammar 0|, I study French and Spanish literature, so you can blame it on that :).

Cheers,

Hello all!

Adam (Thor) here, from the great state of Minnesota.  I have been involved with WW2 reenacting for about 5 years now.  Spent some time with the 12.SS (CHG) out in Cali while I was in the Marines, and am currently a member of the 12.Komp/SS-Deutschland.  Got started with them when I lived on the east coast after I got out of the Corps.  Moved back to my home state of Minnesota last year, but still participate in east coast events as money and time allows.

I am also looking to branch off into WW1 reenacting, and am just starting the process of piecing together my kit.

Looking forward to many interesting conversations here!

Well, I never thought I'd be a reenactor, but here I am.  Ethan here, I'm with the 5th Gebirsjager out of TEXAS and I was in my first event in Waxahachie for their Veterans Appreciation Day.  I know it's true when they say once you try this, you're hooked.  Our Kubel flooded right before the battle and me and another new guy had to haul @$$ across a bridge.  It was GREAT!  Shooting the gun, hearing the MGs barking, the ground shake as the 20mm thumped.  I'm going to be doing this for a very long time.

Moving a little away from Bayern, I am Karl and I am a recovering reenactor.  Some of my bad habits include 1400 +/- for SCA tournaments, Landsknecht for SCA wars, Company of Over (the) Mountain Men (Rev. War before moving), Hardin's Rangers (F&I), and SASS/CAS. 

My compliments on the site layout and I am looking forward to finding more resources for reenacting projects.

Hello!  I'm VERY new to living history but have absolutely fallen in love with it!  Currently, what I'm doing is American colonial circa 1670-1680.  I'm already looking forward to starting my own costume and even making costumes for my children so they can participate as well. I'm really looking forward to training on muskets and cannons in a couple of months as well!  ;D

Same here; just attended the Marching Through History Exposition in early October; my daughter has joined the Clan Mac Colin, but my son and I were fascinated with the British Revolutionary War reenactors; they gave an amazing performance both on the battlefield, and back in camp with the Court Martial of Cpl. Stein (and subsequent execution of the rascal, of course).

Very interested in getting involved and learning more about living history.

Hi folks!  Just found my way into the forum here and figured I'd say hello.  I've been tinkering with LH displays for about 5 years or so...and my closet looks more like a surplus store than a usable place for hanging clothing lol.  My main impression is a Staff Sergeant in E Co., 2nd. Btn., 506th PIR (yes I know everyone does that one).

As of right now I've acquired quite a few weapons (all but 2 actually fire) and a myriad of different odds and ends, such as a working field phonograph and a mine detection unit.  I'm always on the lookout for interesting items related to the Airborne divisions as well as miscellaneous little items that the general public find interesting.  My main reason for this hobby is to educate people about the history of the Airborne, as well as have some fun doing it!

I know this was a bit long winded but my fingers got carried away.  Looking forward to many interesting and informative threads in here  ;D.

Hi,
I send few words from France concerning our group specialized in the Roman army of Cesar.
We propose several typical characters of the period such as legionaries, a bowman (cretan archer), a balearic slinger, a surgeon, auxiliaries, a germanic mercenary, a lupa

Hi Folks...My name  is  Phil  Kirdulis.  I have been  reenacting  since  around  1985...(I think) ??? I  started  doing  American Civil  War  with  John  Callahan  in the  5th  Alabama  Infantry  Battalion, Archer's Brigade.  (first Confederate  unit  into Gettysburg).  I  took  the name  Beegum, an actual  person  of the 5th  that wore a tophat or "beegum". I did too in my impression.  Did that for awhile until the unit morphed into  the  36th Alabama Infantry Regiment.  As  my kids got  older (and  in the Massachusetts  school system) and were told by teachers that  I was representing  the  "EVIL"  side..I decided  to  join a Union unit..the 25th Mass.  Infantry Regiment (a unit that included actual relatives  of mine on it's original roster.)  After  a few years.. I  decided  to reenact  the   French  and Indian  War  period...  I  am  a native  New Englander  and  Love  the  area  and  it's  history.  Met  my present  unit, the  3rd  Mass. Provincial  Regiment,  an  F&I  unit  that  fought  in  many  of  the area's  battles,  at  Fort @ No. 4,  Charlestown, NH  (Love  that  place).

I  love  history, weapons,  the  great  outdoors,  New  England.  I  was  an  Army  Reserve Infantry  officer  for  10 years. All  in various  companies of the 3rd Bn.,  35th  Infantry Regt.  187th  Infantry Brigade (Sep.).  I  was a rifle platoon  leader,  81mm mortar  platoon leader,  Company XO,  Bn S-2  and proud Company Commander  of  Co. A, 3/35th Inf....   Well  that's  me...Glad  to  be here...YHOS..Phil  Kirdulis,  "Beegum"
