New Recruit INfo
Welcome new recruits! Are you ready to sign up for a unique and exciting historical experience? This step-by-step guide will help you with everything you need to do and know before stepping foot on the battlefield.
Step One: Learn
Before enlisting with the Institute, take a moment to learn about us, our methods, and our policies.
Step two: Visit and Sign up
New Recruits are first required to visit us at one of our Drill in the Park events. Please visit our Schedule of Events page and RSVP for the most convenient date for you, so that we know you are coming.
Step three: training
Before you are cleared to participate in a full Battle or Campaign event, the Institute requires that you complete a sufficient amount of training. This can be accomplished in one of two ways: attend one Camp of Instruction, or participate in two additional Drill in the Park events.
Before arriving at the event, make sure to read and carefully follow the following instructions:
Step Four: on to battle!
Once you have completed your training, you will be cleared to participate in a full Battle or Campaign event, where you will become a part of the epic tale of our fight for a New Birth of Freedom! Just log in and return to the Schedule of Events page to register for events. Please remember that the same event instructions noted above apply to Battle and Campaign events as well. If you plan to be with us for the long haul, and would like to save on event fees and be eligible to earn rank, please also consider completing an Extended Enlistment.
