Fedreb - "Did you take in Appomattox Court House or the Museum of the Civil War Soldier at Pamplin, both good days out."

Sadly not. I'm slowly saving up for my next trip over, and both look worthwhile. I'd also aim to get out to Shiloh too.

I miss the Cornish coast up here in Oxford.

As for organisations, I joined the ACW Round Table in October and already attended some good lectures there.

When you get your pence together, Kernow-Ox, let me know. I'd be more than happy to drive you there and watch you walk it. Have some good friends in Tennessee as well. Could make a real trip of it.

Welcome to both of you, Fedreb and Kernow-ox. I've been reading your comments with interest. We were also in the Shenandoah Valley last autumn to do Jackson's Valley Campaign and really liked all the historic sites as well as the wonderful scenery. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. While we were there, we attended the battle of Cedar Creek re-enactment, which prompts my question to you both. Do you have any re-enactment groups in the UK for the American Civil War? Do you have many groups for any other wars as you have had many in your long history?

               Thanks for the welcome. Yes there are Civil war Re-enactors here. In my area we have a really active group called the Southern Skirmish Society who travel all over the UK.Unfortunately I find it hard to fit in the time to see much of them.

              Here in Kent we have a show every year called War & Peace, supposedly the biggest re-enactment gathering in the world, held at the County Showground every August, where you can see all sorts of military groups and hardware from the Romans to the German Panzer Legions. It lasts only 4 days but you would need 2 weeks to see it all so you really have to plan your day to see the bits you want.
