150th Gettysburg National Reenactment April Update

The excitement, anticipation and enthusiasm continues to build in the reenactment community, the Gettysburg community and the international community for the 150th Gettysburg National Civil War Reenactment on July 4, 5, 6, and 7. By the time you receive this correspondence we will have hit the 9,000 registered Reenactor mark, 133 registered full size artillery pieces (with 10 horse drawn) and 375 registered horses. Having been the group that actually ran and executed the operations and logistics at the Bushey Farm in 1998, as well as the Gettysburg 140th and the Gettysburg 145th, we know from experience that planning and logistics for an event of this size is critical, difficult and costly. That is why pre-registration is so important for effective planning. We are announcing that although the registration fee is scheduled to increase on March 31, and will do so on the web, for you procrastinators we are extending the $35 registration fee for any registration received or postmarked by April 15. We have been told over and over that we do logistics as good as anyone and better than most. There are many reasons for that. One is knowing the numbers. We are simply trying to make sure you and your pards get your registrations in so we can effectively plan for your safety, comfort and enjoyment. On a related note there will also be an event commemorative program listing all Reenactors registered by May 15. Having your name included in the program will be a very nice keepsake for this unique and memorable event.
