Clann Nan Con was formed in 1998 by a group of long-time Civil War re-enactors who were looking for a new challenge. Their aim was to give as accurate a portrayal as possible of the early Scottish settlers of Georgia, as well as those who fought for Scottish independence during the risings of the late-17th to mid-18th centuries. Each man wears clothing accurate to the period, made of real Scottish tartan material, and carries historically accurate traditional weapons and accouterments.
Clann Nan Con portrayed the Highlanders in History Uncovered, a new movie developed for Fort Frederica National Monument. The group sets up living history encampments at Highland games and Celtic festivals across the Southeast.
Clann Nan Con is at the heart of living history events at Forts Frederica and King George on the Georgia coast. The group has also participated in wilderness treks through the Cohutta Wilderness and a boat trek from Fort King George to Fort Frederica. For additional information on the clan, contact Chief Britt Brinson.
The Fort New Inverness Garrison is located in Atlanta, GA and strives to preserve the memory and role of our Regiment in North American History.
