This past weekend I took a quick road trip to Ft. Anderson on the Cape Fear to see the members of the Ship's Company of the Roanoke doing a Civil War event. (This is the group I have hooked up with to start doing Civil War Navy) I was made welcome by the fellows there and it felt pretty comfortable. I was in 21st century clothing which felt a little weird but it gave me a chance to look at the event from another angle. I think I am going to enjoy working with the Roanoke lads and also my new time period.
This coming weekend I will be at Moore's Creek National Battlefield doing a 18th Century Sailor. I hope to be able to knock out some rope work as well as a bit of leather stuff. You know what they say, no rest for the wicked.
