Heidi Hauck "Pheobe Butler"
When did you join the 1st Dragoons?
I have been with the unit since its creation in 2003.
What was the major factor in you joining?
I joined the unit as my then boyfriend now husband Shelby was already involved with it and wanted to enjoy going to events with him. My family had been in re-enacting for many years prior and the hobby was already part of my life.
What do you do in real life?
I am currently a stay at home mom, and I also have my own children and family photography business.
What is your favorite aspect of re-enacting the American Revolution?
I enjoy this hobby because I have always had a love for history and I like the family friendly atmosphere that come with it. I also enjoy the ability to go camping, and spending the time outdoors with my family.
What is your fondest memory from your time with the unit?
One of my favorite memories took place outside of an event when we had a unit workshop and I fitted Lauren for a jacket. It was a wonderful bonding experience that helped to strengthen the relationships of the members while we all spent the day helping each other out with small projects.
What is a fun fact about yourself?
I enjoy drawing and my favorite medium is chalk pastels.
