This morning, I went out shopping and saw Piecework magazine. I was thrilled to see a magazine with a "reenactors' issue" available in the supermarket. When I opened it, I was even happier to see that it featured a local Civil War reenacting group, the Atlanta Guard Soldier's Aid Society (AGSAS).
 


I have only encountered AGSAS once several years ago, but they really impressed me with their open attitude, friendliness and their dedication to accuracy. At the time, a large storm hit--and most places in the area lost electricity for several days. I'd already become a fan of their website (there's lots of great information about costuming in that era) and I had heard that this group was going to make an appearance at a historic house in Maryland, regardless of electricity. They had a great presentation--there were presentations on quilting, cooking, hair, knitting and men's activities--I recommend visiting their presentations if you can ever see them! Otherwise, pick up Piecework this month!
