Please accept this as the official notice that the nature coast civil war reenactment committee has retired and will no longer be running the nature coast event at Kirby farms in Williston, fl.

After successfully running this event for 20 years we found that we no longer have the support of all the major civil war groups in florida. One group even ran a “school of the soldier” on the weekend of our event to draw away troops needed to make our long running event a success. Without reenactor support there is no reason to continue to run this event. We have given harDy’s brigade permission to use the well known and respected nature coast name for possible future events. I hope that the problem that closed our event at Kirby farms will not be repeated as it negatively impacts all reenactors and may cause our florida reenactments to die for lack of support.

Our gratitude and apologies to all the loyal troops that supported us!
