Olde South Ball
Half the fun of researching the Victorian era is getting to live it out! This has been called "the most elegant ball in the South." Held in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
Another fun and elegant ball, this one is held in downtown Historic Newberry, South Carolina. The building is historic too, and you'll enjoy the Civil War monument on the green.
The Civilian Civil War Closet
This is a wonderful group of reenactors who love to discuss all things civilian in 1860-1865. I have learned so much in this group and made some great friends as well!
