I'm sending a reply via the list because this is a frquently asked question
and the response may interest others who might be capable of making the
Shiloh Military Trails, Inc. (SMT)
Historical Hiking Trails, Inc.
P.O. Box 17507
Memphis, TN 38187-0507
These are support groups for BSA Troop 343, they sponsor the trail
programs. Have medals and patches, maps, area info. The aniversairy weekend
I think is in April and they have Civil War reenactments. (neat stuff, but
can be very crowded)
For our Non US friends, this would be cannon firing, cavalry demonstrations
and camping and rifle group demonstrations all set in the correct time
frame. All 1850's (I think ? ) camping and military equipment.
Shiloh National Military Park (901) 689-5275
SMT, Inc. (901) 683-3505 office. The office is managed by Ken Humphreys, an
older Scouter, he is only in a couple hours a week, only a few days a week
so I would write before I call.
