The Burnt District Press has made the final campaign for 2012. The winter will be active repairing tents and equipment for the coming campaigns in 2013. This last year was a year of long marches to Shiloh, Tennessee and Raymond, Mississippi with many shorter marches to actions at Lone Jack, Kingston and Hulston Mill in Missouri and Lamoni, IA. The campaign year closed with a grand event at Prairie Grove, Arkansas with warm weather and a rousing crowd of spectators. During the year we made many new friends and renewed acquaintances with old comrades.

The campaign of 2013 opens soon at the event near Pea Ridge, Arkansas. Two long campaigns to Gettysburg and Chickamauga are in the planning stage and the quartermaster is scouring the countryside for supplies. Some actions closer to camp will also occur at Hartville and Marshall, Missouri and possibly another invasion of Iowa in September.

We look forward to visiting with neighbors, friends and comrades. The stories you have are interesting and heirlooms to cherish of your family history. So come relate them to us as we enjoy talking and sharing the past with you that has brought us to the present.

If you don’t wish to wait until an event to contact us, then please write or call.
