Can I book your group for an event?

We are available for public events but our schedule fills up quickly so please contact us early! Please fill out our contact form with as much information as possible about the event and the type of program you are looking for.

Can I join the Mourning Society?

Yes! If you are a reenactor looking to participate in our events or you’d like to get started please reach out to us for information. You do not have to have a mourning ensemble to participate, although there are a few guidelines regarding dressing for events. Here is what we’ll be covering in 2019-2020:

1865: Our next annual event at Bellefontaine Cemetery will be set in the year 1865 just a few months after the end of the Civil War.

1889: We have a new opportunity to interpret the year 1889 in 2020. Details to come!

1916 - 1920: 2020 is the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which granted women the right to vote. There will be several opportunities to interpret significant events in the history of the fight for women’s suffrage.

If you are new and looking into getting started in the realm of historical clothing we can offer guidance, but building your interpretation is up to you. We cannot loan, sell or provide clothing or accessories for you to wear to events.

Can I get automatic updates about your events?
