: Hey Champ,
: Don't forget, the Cherokee fought in the CW too.
: In the heart of John Hunt Morgan country.
as I mentioned in another post, not only do I reenact the 18th century, but I cut my teeth doing Ame. Civil War.
I started out in the [now defunct] 2nd KY Cavalry - "Morgan's Raiders", & I am currently recruiting here in WA for Co.B of Thomas' NC Legion of Cherokees & Highlanders [mounted & dismounted]...
My friend, Capt. Tuklo, commands the recreated 1st Cherokee Mounted Rifles [Stand Watie's Cherokee Braves] in Oklahoma, & their sister unit is the 1st Choctaw Regt, led by 1st Lt. Gunsmith.
I have a number of Cherokee Civil War links too ;-)
As you can tell, I love history, in paticular the periods from 1756 to 1865...
