This community has been disappointingly stagnant lately.



Who would be interested in joining a community in favor of Victorian chops?

x posting .. sad fact

One acre of Civil War battlefield land is destroyed every ten minutes. These battlefields are part of our national heritage; scenes of struggle and sacrifice where American soldiers lost their lives. CWPT is working to preserve these “hallowed grounds,” as Abraham Lincoln called them, so that future generations can learn from them and can learn to appreciate their hard-won freedom.

like encino man, but from the civil war
i wish there was a movie based on the same theme of black knight with martin lawrence or encino man, where a civil war soldier was transported to sacramento circa 1992.

One hell of a model American.
Sort of off topic, but only in the beard department. Other than that, it's all good. Here was one hell of a model American.

Look! A Civil War beard! (one of my many facial hair phases...to break the dry spell)
Let's try this again...

This is a photo of me and a friend at the Siege of Fort Pemberton Reenactment at Florewood Plantation in Greenwood, MS on March 16, 2002. Our impression was that of Federal soliders. (ack! ME....a FEDERAL soldier?! I'll bet my great-great-great grandfathers were rolling in their graves...) Anyway...my nickname for the event (it was my first reenactment) was the Amish Yankee killer. lol. I'm the one with the big red beard. The other guy is my friend Tim.

civil war reenactment is not without its rules
if you wish to attend the civil war reenactment this summer in virginia, hosted by the 33rd & 49th Infantry Company reenactors, you must abide by certain rules. If you plan on attending, please, take into account the following guidelines and rules:



1/2 bale of straw to each person with a tent. Additional straw available at $2.50 per bale (our cost). Fire wood (plenty available: if you need more, ask at registration).

Ladies participating as soldiers may be drummed out of service if effort to conceal their sex is not maintained throughout the event.

Drinks must be in tin cups or period bottles.

Period glasses must be used if you have to wear glasses.

Saber duels are allowed only with the approval of the overall commander or designate of the cavalry.

Sutlers must move their vehicles to the designated parking area once they are unloaded and setup. No parking in the sutlery area (minimum of one hour before the event starts). Use only designated entrance areas for entering the sutery area.

Threats are not to be made by anyone to another person.


No Indians unless in military uniform or unless approved by host unit commanders.

if nothing else, this site has some wonderfully crafted MIDI versions of Old Timey Civil War music. And there's a different song for every page!

check out the chin whiskers on my great-great-great-grandfather...they know how to grow 'em in arkansas. (plus, his name was jehu, which makes me smile.)

facial hair - a rule book
this should serve as a primer on what is and is not good civil war facial hair. of course, there are many exceptions to these rules. particularly since the main ingredient in facial hair in the first half of the 1860's is character, character, character. your beard was an extension of your lifestyle. like a eurovan or mountain dew. you didn't want to get caught with a generic run of the mill beard and stache combo. unless you were abe lincoln. but his character was all in the top hat. a few examples here:


this is carey wade oliver. know what he would look like without his beard? a dipshit. a scrawney old anorexic dipshit. kudos to him on having the balls to grow this mad mother.


these chops are begging to be fucked with. you don't want to go too over the top. some disgruntled soldier might uneven them with their sheering knives when you had too much moonshine.



This is Ed Hunter. I'm sure he got made fun of a lot. We fought a war with the British so we wouldn't have to wear our facial hair like this.






two very similar beards. the top one is for more of the playboy or ladies man(i.e. justin timberlake or rico suave), and the bottom is a bit more badass and trashy, ala kid rock.



Do you want to be a wise old grandpa figure? grow this beard.



Or perhaps looking like frankenstein having tea with the queen? Then go for this shitstache.

Reenactor Society Names
On a sidenote, civil war reenactors give names to their reenactor societies. Some prominent ones include the "Tar Water Mess" gang, the "Pumpkin Patch Mess" folks, and the "Salt River Rifles." http://www.dirtybillyshats.com/ is a good place to start on the road to being a reenactor. Also, I believe a community for Crimean War reenactors is in order. Anyone who can wear a monocle and waxed moustache into battle deserves a webpage on a community for angsty teenagers to write their godawful poetry. If you don't know what the Crimean War was, look it up.
