Any organization looking to host a Civil War-related event (battle or living history) that includes the participation of member units of the New England Brigade (Union) or Liberty Greys (Confederate) may complete an event application form to become eligible to be placed on the proposed calendar list of the New England Civil War Events for the upcoming season. All upcoming events must be placed on the calendar by the Annual Coordinators meeting in December. See our DOCUMENTS page for an EVENT APPLICATION.
The NECWE has a list of guidelines and prerequisites approved by the units of the New England Brigade (Union) or Liberty Greys (Confederate) as a guide to plan and develop a successful event. Guidelines include the registration process, camp layout, battle scenario development, safety and liability issues, and promotional recommendations. See our DOCUMENTS page for the GUIDELINES & PREREQUISITES.
Before you get started in planning your event, let us provide you with a menu of activity options based on your budget. We can help you design an event that includes the participation of all aspects of our hobby... civilian reenactors, infantry, cavalry, dismounted cavalry, artillery, special impressionists (Pres. Lincoln, US Grant, RE Lee, etc), and specialty units including the Topographical Engineers, Field Hospital, Sanitary Commission, Telegraph, and Christian Commission. See our DOCUMENTS page for the EVENT MENU OPTIONS.
There are literally hundreds of details that should be addressed in order to have a successful Civil War event. Let us provide you with a checklist so that nothing goes unaddressed. Checklist includes items such as... contact with the local police and fire authorities, a medical response plan, potable water access, health department permits, development of social media promotion, building community support partners, sponsorship requests, securing dry firewood, determining number of portable restrooms, etc. See the DOCUMENTS page for the EVENT CHECKLIST.
