We must impose this requirement due to the number of no-shows who we prepare for, and lose money on, due to them not arriving as promised.

2016 CIVIL WAR WEEKEND
Dear Fellow Reenactor,
The Civil War Weekend began in 2004 as a program for the Allegheny Highlands Council Boy Scout fall camp-o-ree, and ten years ago became a full fledged reenactment event. Any of the attendees from past years can tell you we host a fun event!
Several years ago we left the fairgrounds and held the event entirely at locations throughout the circa 1806 Village of Angelica. After the 2015 event, the Angelica Village Board informed us we could no longer use the Village streets for the event, so we looked for an alternate location. The Village of Wellsville welcomed us with open arms and we will be using Island Park, on the Genesee River for our 2016 event.
The battles this year will combine fights through the park, and if we can arrange it, a fight over the river bridge. The Boy Scouts will still be participating, and their camps will be nearby in a different part of the Park. As always, we will have something new for you to try!
REGISTRATION & AMENITIES: Registration fee is $8.00 per person for those 12 and older. Children under 12 are free. Unfortunately, in order to avoid losing money due to no-shows, we must insist on receipt of the registration form AND payment by the deadline to qualify as pre-registered. There is a FREE welcoming meal on Friday night, free good quality firewood, and sanitary facilities will be provided throughout the area of the camps, and a dance with City Fiddle on Saturday night. (Sorry, no ladies’ Tea this year—working on it for next year!) Pre-registration is required to obtain the food amenities, and tickets for them will be provided at registration.
BOUNTIES: We offer bounties only for the first 2 artillery pieces registered and taking the field on each side. Pre-registration is required, and the postmark date will determine eligibility.
FOOD: Friday 6:00pm until 9:00pm, a free supper will be available for all reenactors (please bring your own plates and utensils). Local organizations and businesses will be offering meal specials as well.
LIVING HISTORY PROGRAMS & SCENARIOS: We welcome any interested reenactors who may wish to help with the School Education Day on Friday the 23rd 9:00am to 2:30pm, and the Boy Scout living history program on Saturday morning the 24th 9:00am to Noon. Local schools are sending classes for the day on Friday, and the scouts will be learning about various aspects of the Civil War, and also holding their own battle on Saturday after the reenactor’s battle. Anyone willing to help with the School Day or interpretive stations or the scout battle is welcome to join us. Please note your availability for participation on the registration form or at Registration.
