Have you always been interested in reenacting but don’t know how to get started? Check out information here.
The Northwest Territory Alliance (NWTA) is an American Revolutionary War reenactment organization located in the Midwestern United States. We have over five hundred members from states as far west as Iowa, east to Ohio, North to the Canadian border, and south to Tennessee.
We are a non-profit educational organization that studies and recreates the culture, lifestyle, and arts of the time of the American Revolution, 1775-1783. We strive to duplicate the uniforms, weapons, battlefield tactics, and camp life of the era as accurately as possible.
NEW at our Forest Glen event this weekend: Demonstration Contest! Reenactors: Sign up for the demonstration contest and you could win a $50 Baldwins Gift Certificate (to be used at one Baldwins vendor in 2016 or 2017). During the demonstration contest hour, 1pm-2pm on Saturday (and throughout the rest of the event if you like), give a presentation to the public or demonstrate your craft, and the judges will come by with a score card (as long as you've signed up--talk to Jo Peelman!). And for those attending the event as spectators--this means that we'll have increased demonstrations during the early afternoon hours! Budget some extra time to watch, ask questions, and participate! ... See MoreSee Less
NWTA Merchants launched a new project at Cantigny last weekend. The Liberty Tree Coin Historical Challenge was given out to the public at the event. We had over 300 children go up and down the avenue seeking out answers from our member vendors about the historical aspects of their craft. (The parents also learned a thing or two!)
The reward for a completed questionnaire was a Liberty Tree coin created and cast by Sheldon Pewter.
