  Welcome to the Federal Generals Corps ladies Fashion page. As re-enactors we strive to create the highest level of authenticity as possible. In our world of inaccurate representation, we will try to guide and educate you towards an accurate portrayal. We have some guidelines listed below and each month will feature a new fashion plate for reference. We have a Contact Us section if you have any questions about Ladies Fashion. If we can't answer your question, we will try to lead you in the right direction.
