Living Historians and Reenactors based in Northeastern Tennessee offering the public a glimpse of what life was like in another time!

Since 2011, our living history organization has hosted a Veterans tribute event known as 'A Walk in Their Boots'. The event is held the weekend prior to Veterans Day and offers opportunities to visit extensive displays of military and civilian equipment, gear, weapons, etc., representing various time periods from Revolutionary War to Modern Day. The event is free to attend, and features our Veterans Recognition Program, battle re-enactments, weapons demos, military vehicles, a lecture series and more. We also offer a private 'Education Day,' for local student groups to experience a 'day in the life' of the American Soldier during the conflicts that shaped our country's rich history.

Throughout the year, our members participate in numberous events across the southeast and beyond. There are multiple local and regional events we support to help "bring history to life".
