We visit historic sites throughout the Carolinas, Virginia, Florida and Georgia, where we reenact battles and demonstrate eighteenth century skills and camp life.
We are a family oriented non-profit organization which prides itself on the high quality of our interpretations of eighteenth century life. As reenactors, we share our historical knowledge with the public through these interpretations. In this manner, we can vividly explain the past, the Highlander men and women who defended the Crown, and the social customs that defined their daily lives.
