150 Years

December 15th, 2012:

To the Visitors and Members of the Carolina Rifles-Military Reenacting Assocaition

Reflecting back on 2011, this has been a year of transition and success for our unit.  In January we successfully conducted the first 150th Sesquicentennial event by recreating Major Anderson's move from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter, with 110 reenactors in attendance.  The event earned high remarks and praise for us.

In April we represented Battery B of the 1st South Carolina Artillery at the "Firing on Fort Sumter" commemoration. We worked for four days on living history demonstrations, cannon and infantry drills.  We were part of the first Confederate unit to occupy Fort Sumter.

For November our Secretary Brian Sharp, coordianted "Over There" for 11-11-11, we had 18 reenactors representing different eras of the US military from the Revolution to W W 2.  Over 800 people visited our program at Fort Moultire for the three days and we were highly praised by the National Park Service and Ranger Dennis Birr.

In December, we officially started our impression for the Sesquicentennial, which is Company F, of the 17th South Carolina.  We will still help our friends with the S.C.A.R., Palmetto Battalion and Armory Guards, but we are going to organize 1-4 events to honor the Tramp Brigade and the 17th S.C.  We welcome any support and are still looking for new members.  Our current impression standards are valid until May, 2013 before the Mississippi Campaign.

Keep checking back to this website and our Facebook page and the schedules.  We are going to be actively engaging in advertising, recruiting, fund raising and event organizing.  Our biggest focus for 2012 will be the 150th events for June 16th (Tower Battery) at Fort Lamar, August (2nd Manassas), Antietam (Maryland, My Maryland),  Fort Moultrie Timeline and the Kinston LH in December.

I am looking forward to the events ahead and representing  the men of the 17th South Carolina.  If you are interested in joining our group please e-mail:  gdeese@carolina-rifles.org
