Stolen Trailer

Dear Fellow Living History Family,

$1,000 reward leading to the arrest/conviction of the person(s) who stole the Fatula’s trailer, which contained over $30,000 of stock.

If you have any information, please contact Joe or Mary at 408-591-4034 or

Please pass this on to all your history connections to be on the looking for anyone selling the trailer of any “Lumemaris” items for sale by someone other than Joe or Mary Fatula.

Thank you,

Upcoming Events

Sergeant Sez

Thank you to everyone who turned out for Roaring Camp.  We had a great turnout - the best of the year so far.  We had lots of fresh fish and I hope to see you all again.

We're only a few days away from Roaring Camp!  Please read the event schedule, site map, and rules (attached).  

Some last minute reminders:

69th New York, Company B, 

The time has come to request RSVP's from you as to your intention to attend the Roaring Camp event that is coming up. The event will take place the weekend of May 26th and 27th, with the entire event going from Saturday to Monday, due to the long weekend. There is also School Days which start on May 22nd. (Though Im not sure if we will attend the school days as a company.) 

Sergeant Sez

Thank you to everyone who turned out at Mariposa.  It was a small group but we had a good time.  We got to beat the snot out of the CS Marines again and there was a lovely twilight battle as well.  Special greetings to David and Nicole; it was a pleasure having both of you join us and we hope to see you again.

Next ACWA event is Roaring Camp.  It's our smallest event, but still one of the best.  A ride on the steam train, a day of skirmishing on Bear Mountain, and the ball.  What more could you want?

Mariposa: Second Call

Sergeant Sez

I'm skipping first call because we're only a week and a half away from the event.  If you're coming, please let me know now.  Remember to tell me:

  • Which days you'll be there
  • Whether you want meals

RSVP to me for this one.

Mariposa is our absolute best event.  The site can't be beat, there will be cavalry and mobile artillery.  Last year we did a hand-to-hand with the CS Marines.

KF: Last Call

We're just a few days away from burning so much powder that God Himself will look down from Heaven and say "Yeah, that was cool."  Please see below for some last minute information.  If you haven't rsvp'd yet, this is your last chance.

Matt Needs a Ride

Matt Harvey wants to go but he needs a ride.  He's in South Bay.  If you can give him a ride, you'll increase the cuteness factor of our unit by like 1,000.

Seriously, he's an awesome guy and you should give him a ride.  His number is (408) 529-4780.

Captain's Corner

Gentlemen and ladies, 


Sergeant Sez

The people have spoken, and I have been dethroned from my lofty perch and cast down among the enlisted.  Here are the election results:

Julian Elliot, Captain

Jordan Koplowicz, First Sergeant

Michael Gatley, Corporal

Michael Sanders, Color Corporal

Judie Adams, Camp Mom

I'm sorry I missed Ft. Point - my wife has been suffering from a sever toothache, requiring multiple surgeries.  She'll be fine, but I was needed at home.
