2015 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 eight 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! 

Several 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.  Feedback from all of you AND from the Village residents indicated this was a success.  We had a loss of local support last year but have regrouped with new local sponsorship from the American Legion and others.  The battles will again encompass both street battles as we have had in the past and an open field battle.  The Boy Scouts will still be participating, and their camps will remain on the fairgrounds.  Many of the local community organizations will join in events to welcome the re-enactors, and in recreating the 1860’s.  Multiple scenarios throughout the period village are available for reenactors.  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.  Any net receipts over expenses will be donated to the fund to preserve NY Civil War battle flags.  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.  We host one of the best Ladies’ Teas in the area on Saturday afternoon, and a dance with City Fiddle on Saturday night.  Pre-registration is required to obtain the food amenities.

BOUNTIES:  We offer bounties only for the first 3 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 and the Legion will hold an All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast with real maple syrup on Sunday morning.

LIVING HISTORY PROGRAMS & SCENARIOS:  We welcome any interested reenactors who may wish to help with the School Education Day on Friday the 25th  9:00am to 2:30pm, and the Boy Scout living history program on Saturday morning the 26th 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.  In addition, scenarios downtown in the village are also planned, and individuals willing to participate should note on the registration.
