Southern California Reenactor's Hall of Fame

 

In the Spring of 2007, the Board of Directors of the Frontier Army of the West, Inc. (parent legal non profit corporation of the 2nd US Cavalry Regiment (reenactors)) was meeting to plan the 3rd Annual Cotillion and Military Ball to be held in July, 2007.  The Board, through its Cotillion Committee has already added the “Punch Bowl Ceremony” to the 2006 Cotillion, and had placed the “Table of the Fallen” into the first Cotillion in 2005.  The idea was floated for a Southern California Civil War Reenactors Hall of Fame, which would honor several persons each year and continue the tradition each year.
The hobby had suffered several deaths of prominent reenactors during the previous year, and the idea was to honor appropriate persons while they were still with us.  The criteria was debated, and it was decided that the following traits would have to present in all new honorees:


     -Over  ten  years  service  in the hobby.
     -Some significant contribution to the hobby over those ten years.

 

In 2007, the Board of Directors of the FAW chose the first six honorees. They were six people who had served the hobby for years. They were Colonel Ed Mann, Lt.Col. Al Haun, Lt. Col. Reed Settle,  Major Neil Morrison, Captain Tom Atkins, and Civilian Shelley Peters. After that year, the honorees voted each year for the next class of the Hall.
