Here is a Civil War reenactment schedule for 2016. For the novice reenactor or interested person, this will tell you when and where some major events are taking place. If some are in your area, you will certainly want to attend and/or participate. If you are a veteran reenactor, this will help you locate additional events in which you or your unit may wish to participate.
For an excellent site devoted to Civil War events happening each month in each state, go to Civil War Traveler.com They also have touring maps and state-by-state info. For current events and upcoming Civil War News, click on Civil War News: The Monthly Current Events Newspaper. I recommend going to both of the sites in order to get the most comprehensive list of events and contact info. Each site also has a link so that you can notify them of any event in your area that you would like posted for everyone to see.
Most units engage in several local events (drills, parades, fairs or festivals that are designed to boost their visibility and local membership, and annual business meetings), which may not be of interest to curious civilians or other units. This information can be found in the events schedule normally listed on each unit’s website. If you know of a particular unit in your area, this is a great way to find out what they will be doing locally that you can attend.
I have limited my list of events to those I have been requested to post. It is my desire to make this a comprehensive resource for every major upcoming event. If you know of one that is not listed or a link that needs to be updated, please contact me and give me the proper information.
The Following are monthly events nationwide as listed by CivilWarTraveler.com
