2019 Calendar of Reenactment and Living History Events

     I wanted to post a listing of reenactments that are up and coming for 2019.  Thanks to Michael Grenier, Commander of the 64th Regiment of Foot and former Brigadier of the British Brigade, for compiling it as he does every year.  It is nice to have a single list to refer to.  

     If your unit is attending one of these, or if you are looking to participate, just do a search as most of these actually have websites!
