A campaign style unit! Live the life of a soldier on campaign, not a pretender huddled in a winterquarters tent - in July. Learn how campaign style camping can be more luxurious than the perceived comfort of tent and cot. See my article entitled, "Less is More" which appeared in Camp Chase Gazette. .
Live a soldier's life! Wear jeancloth, shoulder your musket, carry your gear, and drill according to the Musket Drill. Survive on sow belly, hardtack, corn meal, and coffee. See, Authenticity Standards for the unit. Where can I purchase some of this stuff? Click here for the Resources Page on the Authentic Campaigner site.
