Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

My wife and I met at a reenactment. Now just shy of 25 years later, we're still together and still reenacting. I wish you many wonderful years together filled with many great memories of the campaigns that you will share together. :-)

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

Congratulations Kinsey and Daniel! I remember Daniel when he was a member of the 4th VA Infantry which was connected to our Atlantic Guard Soldiers' Aid Society an authentic civilian unit. Enjoy your living history experiences with him, it's a lot of fun!

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

As a living historian since 1994, I really enjoyed reading the story and congratulations on the marriage from one re-enactor to another

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

I love this story. I have been around re-enacting since the 1980's, I live the other side of the spectrum. None of my husbands embraced re-enacting. My children enjoy it and my son will be carrying on the tradition. The only thing harder than loving living history is having no one to share it with. I dream of living in tents at historical sites, but as a lady, I cannot do it alone. Embrace the fun, raise your children to love history and they will become better people for the experience. Congratulations and many years of happiness together, no matter what time period you are in.

My wife LOVES the hobby - so much so that when I get home from events, we play 'Fritz and the Saucy Ukrainian Farm Girl.'

Re: “THRIVE ‌ Martial Arts

This article feeds into the common westernized misconceptions of Taijiquan(Taichi)
In reality it is as effective a Martial art as any named in this article.
It depends mostly on the teacher's knowledge and what the student really wants to derive from it. It's true most people these days practice it more for it's health benefits but it is completely untrue that it's inception was for the purpose of allowing older people to continue to practice martial arts. Although Taijiquan is strictly for self defense every single aspect practiced in Taijiquan has martial purpose. And miraculously so, on the flip side, has a health/longevity purpose. However it is such a sophisticated art, it does take years of practice to really grasp all the subtleties contained in the art. On Wudang mountain in China, the legendary birth place of the art, the Masters start students as young kids which allows more time and likelyness for them to reach Mastery.
I will be moving to Charleston soon and spreading Wudang Martial Arts of which Taijiquan, Gong Fu, and Xing Yi are in the curriculum.
For video examples of these arts

I am a certified instructor under Zhou Xuan Yun, The only Daoist Priest and Wudang Martial Arts Master in the country
Anyone wishing to study these arts can contact me

Re: “Hidden Heritage

The Remley's Park development has plotted 11 lots near the cemetery while there appears to be a cordoned path and separate area for the cemetery. This may be the inevitable change which accompanies growth while this plan seems to be a respectful outcome versus the development plan of 2008. Much like the older cemeteries in cities such as New York City which date to the early 1700s a peoples' heritage can continue side-by-side with growth. As a point of clarification, Scanlonville is the community of people living along 3rd-through-7th Avenues while Remley's Point is more representative of the boat landing area bordering the Wando River. As a resident of Scanlonville I learned the name by simply reading the sign located at the junction of Fifth Avenue and Mathis Ferry Road. Much like the Old Village, Hamlin Plantation and Snowden it is an area of Mount Pleasant. Born in California and raised near NYC I also lived in Atlanta for 20 years where I traveled to work with the Japanese, Koreans, Europeans, Singaporeans and Indians among others. Upon returning to work in NYC I listened to unflattering stereotypical references to southerners from people who never lived in the region. Some people will always disparage others while the best persons embrace differences and the uniqueness of human spirit.

Re: “Hidden Heritage

They are building there today. Plans for several large houses and they are putting in the road through the land. Go see for yourself.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Keeping Veronica and Dusty in prayer this Father's Day. If there is one positive aspect of this story it is that it has brought attention to the ugly side of the U.S. adoption industry. This is a vicious story of human trafficking and (while not typical) is not entirly unique either. The amazing thing about Veronica is how many adoptive family supporters have come together with first family supporters to mourn her loss and pray for her.... It's the one issue on which we can ALL agree. See attached article Adoptive Families Circle...http://www.adoptivefamiliescircle.comgroup…

Re: “So I’m Marrying a Reenactor

I would just like to know where I CAN meet a man who's into this sort of thing - especially the Civil War and WWII. I live in Mississippi by the way. Also, are there any websites for single reenactors???

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

More lies and more op-ed propaganda. Bottom line Veronica BROWN belongs with her father, sister, grandparents and cousins in Oklahoma. If the Capobiancos had one whit of compassion they would long since Voluntarily given custody back to the biological family. Adoption is for children without a family. Stop child trafficking now!

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

People need to read and research the truth before telling lies about Veronica's real father. Read all the lies and half truths that are put out there by the biological mother and the adoptive parents. They knew from the beginning that this little girl should have not been sold to them.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Can any of you read? or are all of you illiterate. Have any of you read the court doc's?
Ohhh, I forgot you what TV and listen to the Media and listen the C's and how they are soooooo abused. The Ignorance, Illiterate, The dumbest people I've ever come across. Wow, Read if you can the Courts doc's that is if you have enough intelligence to understand, I'm beginning to wonder if this country hasn't grown stupid.
I don't like the C's using the main stream media for profit.

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

I would say that these crazy people have recieved their 15 minutes of fame. Now, can we all agree that they just go away and buy a new baby? Man, if GOD wanted them to have a child, he would of allowed them to produce one. He did not, so maybe that is a sign they should not have children??????

This couple is sick sick sick. I am disgusted that they are keeping the ball rolling on this. The proof is in the pudding. This couple is trying to use the media to their advantage, and it seems to be working, but if people would actually look into this cae on their own, they would find a lot of lies and deceit by the mother and this gross couple.

IF, this little girl is somehow given to these crazy people, she will grow to hate and resent them because of this and in the end, leave them, mark my words!

Re: “Broken Home: The Save Veronica story

Dusten Brown is HER FATHER. Period. These people are crazy and are NOT her parents. I don't care what some government court says. That is where she should be, with her biological family that loves her. Shame on them for being so selfish.

Go ahead, get her back and see how much she resents you people when she finds out you took her from her daddy that wanted her.
