You are cordially invited to attend the 2014 Angelica Civil War Weekend.  This is our tenth year hosting a Civil War program in Angelica, NY.  All impressions of military and civilian reenactors and your scenarios are welcome.  A Boy Scout Education Day will be held on Saturday October 11th, 9:00am to Noon.  Volunteers are needed to man the stations and as guides for the scouts!

 

There will be no registration fee this year!  We do ask that you pre-register so we can plan enough food for the free Friday night supper.  Deadline for advance registration is September 15, 2014, and walk-ons will not have access to the dinner.  Due to the loss of our local sponsor, we are forced scale back this year’s event, and return to the Allegany County Fairgrounds (where we held the event for several years).  In 2015 we hope to return downtown!

 

Activities include lots of Education, encampment, and two battles.  A FREE Beef on Weck buffet supper will again be available Friday evening for all reenactors. 

 

Firewood and other usual amenities provided.  Sanitary facilities available throughout the reenactor areas. 

Cannon Bounty paid for only the first 2 artillery pieces registered & taking field on each side..

Pre-registration required for bounty and other amenities.  

 

Tent

Reenactor camps will be set up on the fairgrounds.  (NOT DOWNTOWN THIS YEAR)

 

Modern camping (no hookups) available in separate area.

2014 ANGELICA CIVIL WAR WEEKEND

 

Dear Fellow Reenactor,

The Angelica Civil War Weekend began in 2004 as a program for the Allegheny Highlands Council Boy Scout fall camp-o-ree, and seven years ago became a full fledged reenactment event. Any of the attendees from past years can tell you we host a fun event, and that the Angelica Community is substantially period-correct and VERY friendly to reenactors! 

A few years ago we left the fairgrounds and held the event entirely at locations throughout the circa 1806 Village of Angelica, with camps along Main Street in the historic District.  Unfortunately, loss of our local sponsor has made that impossible this year.  We will be returning to our roots and again host the event entirely on the fairgrounds, focused on the Boy Scout education program.  The battles will again be held on the hillside adjacent to the camps.  The Boy Scouts will still be participating, and their camps will remain on a separate part of the fairgrounds.  Hopefully we can reorganize local support and return downtown in 2015!

 

REGISTRATION & AMENITIES:  THERE IS NO REGISTRATION FEE THIS YEAR.    There is still a FREE welcoming meal on Friday night, free good quality firewood, and sanitary facilities will be provided throughout the area of the camps.   Pre-registration is required to obtain the Friday night food.

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).   

LIVING HISTORY PROGRAMS & SCENARIOS:  We welcome any interested reenactors who may wish to help with the Boy Scout living history program on Saturday morning the 11th  9:00am to Noon.  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 interpretive stations or the scout battle is welcome to join us.  Please note your availability for participation on the registration form or at Registration.
