130th N-SSA Nationals - Fall Fun!


The 130th N-SSA Nationals are upon us, and being held October 1-5, 2014 at Fort Shenandoah outside lovely Winchester, VA.

We weathered a lot of weather (we call that wet stuff Shenandoah sunshine) in the 129th Nationals in May, but we are returning to the Fort to do battle again, and take up arms in friendly competition with our fellow members, display our finest costume creations, have fellowship, swap stories, catch up and enjoy another long weekend doing what we like best.

Join us and come see how people dressed, see the weapons that were used, tour our Civil War museum and feel the ground shake when the cannons fire!
