We have a spiffy "Welcome Area" here on reenactor.Net. It will show you how to get around and do some of the things we've found need a little explaining... to visit our Welcome Area, go here: http://www.reenactor.net/new_area/welcome_message.html
The 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. All in all, a pretty exciting time period.
