Fascinating. I think that is really cool what you gents are doing over there. Are any of your members related to the Italians that fought in the American Civil War?

I've visited several places over in Italy. La Maddalena, Brindisi, Naples, Venice. Beautiful country, really pretty women, fantastic food. I could literaly eat the grass on the side of the road in Italy and love it. Everything tastes good over there. It has to be something in the soil.

Everyone talks about the food in France. Well, I've been to France and their food doesn't even begin to compare to Italian cuisine. France has wine and cheese. That's about it as far as I noticed.

Thank you all also for nice words about my country. Hope we can enjoy one of the big reenactments in this 150th, we are working for it. But is not easy to move a group ( even if small ) to USA...
As you can see we organize also in Europe some small reenactment during the year...

Answering to the question of johnny reb: no we haven't ancestors who fight in Civil War.

Welcome Niccolò!

Why don't you go ahead and register here and become a part of the forum and join in the discussions? The viewpoint of non-Americans who don't have "a dog in the fight" are always enlightening and welcome.

Hope you and your pards can make it to some of the 150th events. If I had to choose one and only one I guess it would be Gettysburg (it'll probably be the largest) but I would try and make at least one of the smaller ones too. (Selma or Bridgeport Alabama would be good ones)

Thought you might find this interesting. I have a good friend and fellow re-enactor who is of Italian descent. We were discussing WWII once and found out our father's were on opposite sides in that war. His was in the Italian army mine in the American in Italy. Fortunately they never had to shoot at each other. His father was a truck driver and mine was a radar operator. Small world though

Macreverie, have you ever been to any of the Olustee, FL reenactments? I remember they were a pretty big deal when I was stationed in Jacksonville.

yes a couple of times but it has been a while. used to be a big event and because it was the earliest in the "season" it was always a big sutler event.

Welcome Niccolò!
I enjoyed having a look at your site.
Being of Italian heritage myself on my father's side, your post naturally caught my eye (although I know I had no Italian ancestors in the ACW because it was my grandparents who immigrated to America in the early 1900s).

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Soon on our website will be published a short article on the Italian presence in the American Civil War.
