Authentic Campaigner

The AC is a collection of articles and links to articles full of all sorts of great information, previously not generally available. Prior to the interwebs, it was more difficult to access information about what was “correct” and more importantly “why”. Perhaps you had a friend that copied the “Hardcracker Handbook” for you, or maybe you subscribed to “The Watchdog”. In that day and age, there were a lot of people coming to realize that what they’d been led to believe was “correct” by their pard, captain, or unit authenticity shaman, wasn’t quite right… but they didn’t know why. Most good ideas start with the recognition of an unmet need: "If only…” there was a way that the general population of reenactors could access reliable documentation to help them make the leap from an impression based on what they’ve been told to one based on what is correct. Here you will find the leaders of a truely authentic impression and a community that continues to challenge one onother in achieving the most accurate impression possible.
