News from Our Living History Group
One thing I probably forgot to mention a few weeks ago is that our living history organization underwent a few fundamental changes at our unit meeting on November 18. We organized an umbrella organization that encompasses not only Ship's Company of the Roanoke (our maritime arm, if you will) and the 5th NC Regiment Continental Line (our sister Rev War unit). This allows the 5th to be covered under our group liability insurance policy, but it also allows us to more effectively run both organizations under one Executive Committee (expanded from three to five members). We decided to name the umbrella organization the Carolina Living History Guild, which we feel really reflects what we do and our mindset that living history in a lot of ways is a craft. We are looking forward to 2008 with renewed energy and look forward to more growth.
