Do you have a unit website? Like to see that. Alas, MTT is always held the same weekend as WWI, so... many of us can't make it.  >:(
Best, Marsh

Balaklava:
Hey Marsh. Unit is www.93rdhighlanders.com, I am likely the only east coast member. The Crimean / Indian Mutiny impressions are new this year, I'm jazzed. MTT just got a new site manager and no fees this year to reenactors / living historians. I stopped going when the last lady thought we should pay $20 a head to attend. ***I always wanted to get up to see WW1 (Newville?) but I hear that is not a spectator event. Best to you Sir,

Cheers, Johnnie, 93rd Highlanders 1812-1858.

That is just INSANE -- they make money OFF the reenactors and THEN, think they should charge us. I bet she's the idiot that killed Roman Days there too. I'll tell you, if it wasn't for reenactors, Marietta WOULD have become townhouses. These modern day, new age governmental ding dongs will be the ruin of history. No, I wasn't allowed to tell her my feelings, nor go to her boss. Some people should just be fired for being stupid! 0|

Balaklava:
About Marietta, Susan Wolfe was the site manager for about 20 years until 2007 or so, was our dearest friend but she retired and we won't get another one like her there. Then we got Ms. Susan Reidy for a couple years but all she was interested in was her own official status. Charging reenactors you say ? Ms. Reidy spent her Maryland National Capitol Park and Planning Commision, Prince Georges County Maryland, budget money on big upgrades within her office space in the mansion. She got a full kitchen, new twin powder rooms, remodeled office and brand new flooring & furniture among other things. A pitiful self centered pretentious person is the kindest thing I will say. That's why reenactors were to foot the event bills. I went to a planning meeting for last years event and sat in the back. She had the hook in way deep in all the reenactors in the room. It's like they were hooked on reenacting crack and Reidy was the dealer. I can't believe reenactors go for this kind of crap. Once a new site manager starts this poo it does not end. To the last MTT event I went to when Reidy was new I took over 25K of WW2 kit, a restored 1942 Canadian CMP truck, a gas powered Vickers MG and all the stuff that goes with it as well as original 1942 canvas. Next year all reenactors were being charged the fees and I took a powder. Now Reidy is gone and a Ms. Mary Amen is site manager. She has been very friendly and thorough in the email organizing the upcoming MTT event. There are no fees for reenactors or spectators now. I look forward to attending this years event - which is next weekend. So no WW1 for me right now.   

93rd Reg't of Foot Sutherland Highlanders Living History Unit should definately be on Reenactor.net but this organization is the creation of the senior officer, Mr. Benton Jennings of California, and he should make the application. I will send an email to him and appraise of your query & invite.

Cheerio, Johnnie, 93rd Highlanders 1812-1858.
