The weekend of November 2-4, 2018 The Broadside Mess will be hosting a full-immersion event just outside of Hillsboro, West Virginia.
This event will recreate the Battle of Droop Mountain on the original ground and will be comprised of a combination of local documented situations preceding the battle and a historical portrayal of the battle itself. Confederate forces are being organized by the Southern Division under the command of Dick Watters while the Federal forces are being organized and commanded by Will Eichler. Due to the size of Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park, we are required to impose a limit of 200 Federal and 125 Confederate participants.
