Relive the turning over of the CSS Shenandoah to British authorities and HMS Donegal which was cancelled in Liverpool, England, 6 November 2015 as the vessel Zebu being used as CSS Shenandoah

sank at her mooring at the Albert Dock, thus the reenactment had to be postponed.  We would like to

invite all in the States whom are interested in allying with three UK Confederate Reenactment  Groups along with the Royal Navy re-enactors.  Confederate Navy Officer and Seaman as well as  Confederate Marine uniforms a must.  “Last Flag Down” of the Confederacy will include, memorial services and ceremonies to include tributes to the 100’s of Blockade Runners built in Britain where their efforts assisted in allowing the Confederacy  to continue the struggle for Independence for an additional  two years.  Bronze Markers will be dedicated and several European Confederate Medal of Honors will be awarded.  For more information  and registration forms,  Michael Reid @ 804-261-6847 or  email
