American Soldier at War Historic Timeline
Parsons,WV Sept. 25-27 2010
(rain or shine)

The first annual The American Soldier at War Historic Timeline (http://americansoldieratwar.webs.com) will be held in Parsons, WV. Appalachia has served its country throughout history in all of its military conflicts. It is to honor these men and women who served that we invite you to visit this weekend. The timeline will be taking place on historic Corricks Ford Battlefield which saw the first general on both sides fall during the Civil War. It is also with honor that the event will be asking for donations to preserve a piece of sacred ground the guaranteed the Union control of western Virginia.

Looking for units that represent the US and adversaries from the following time periods.
French and Indian War, American Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican-American War, American Civil War, Spanish-American War, WWI, WWII (other Allies please contact also), Korean War and Vietnam.

Please note that if your unit commits it is important to ensure that you are there as (the site is 25 acres and on an original Civil War battlefield) each spot will be measured and numbered to make it easier to find appropriate locations. Posted link to the website which should be finished soon. For more information you may contact the event organizers at parsons@wwiilha.com and they will get back to you as soon as possible. Asked to put this out and please pass it on to other time periods.

Thanks

BTW It will seems that there are nice sites to play in the area and some of the landowners will be attending to get a feel for reenacting!

Registration forms are now up! Pass it along because some property owners will be there to check it out and to decide on allowing access to their land.
