comment: Just getting started in reenacting after 25 years as a NMLRA member. Going to try and recreate the Savannah Georgia/ South Carolina woodsrunner with a Saltzberg influence. My family came from Saltzberg, Austria to Savannah around 1740 to provide cheap labor for the English. "Saltzbergers" as they are known worked so hard and were so organized, they established independent towns surrounding Savannah. Can anyone help me get going in the right direction? I am not a compulsive type, but want to seek accuracy in dress and equipage. Please e-mail me at Ernie3006@aol.com and point me toward suppliers for the period 1790-1800, Southeast, longhunter/German-Austrian. Thanks in advance for any help...God bless.
Ernie
