Our organization has decided to change our confederate affiliation and portrayal from Company C, 5th Georgia, to Company G, 15th Tennessee. Co. G, 15th TN has a unique and almost forgotten story which we feel the need to portray to the public, more so than the 5th Georgia. A new website will be running soon, and this website will redirect there upon completion.
Upon a unit decision, we have decided to pull the Aurora event at Blackberry farm from our schedule in order to conserve resources for the many other events we still plan to attend.

After receiving conflicting information earlier in the year, it has been determined that the event in Orion, Illinois is no longer occuring; our Schedule has been updated to reflect this.
Upon further decision, the unit has decided to cancel our planned attendance at a Friday-Saturday living history in Camanche, IA in favor for an event the same weekend in Morton, IL. The reason for this change being that enough members could not commit to attending the entire day on Friday of the event. See our full schedule on our EVENTS page.
