2017

Well, 2016 is gone and we look ahead into 2017.  The 9th Ky has actually grown the last few years even as other units barely hold onto memberships or fade away.  We also are happy to be seeing an interest among younger guys again.  For a while there it looked like the youth were only interested in WW2 re-enacting or playing video games as the Civil War participation was aging out.  Last year we picked up about 5 or 6 new recruits that look to be ready to stick around.  

The unit 2017 calendar is posted on the website and will be updated as things change.  As we are coming out of the 154th Stones River anniversary and have about 6 weeks until we get going at Ft. Donelson again, now is the time to repair gear, do maintenance on garments, leathers, muskets, etc. and of course roll rounds.
