The Tenth Tennessee determines its schedule during our annual meeting in February. On average, the Tenth will be at between eight and twelve events per year ranging from May until October. Some years the Tenth will travel to a “national” event held at actual battle sites around the different theaters of operation (mostly in the southeastern states).
The Tenth always welcomes anyone interested in the hobby or even the welcomed discussion on Civil War history. Feel free to come and see us at any of these events around the Midwest. To help support local historical societies, there may be an entrance fee.
Private, invitation-only event is when members of the Tenth and co-op units come together for drill, planning, and collaborating for the coming season. Held on the Wade House grounds in Greenbush, this event is intent to sharpen individual skills and fine tune impressions. Map to Spring Muster.
