About Us

Clann Nan Con was founded in 1998 by a group of Civil War Reenactors looking for a new challenge.  The founding members were Britt Brinson, Phillip Boyd, Amos McCall, and Mark Tippens. The clan name is Gaelic for “Clan of the Dog.”  Our motto is “Uaireigin Cu, Daonnan Cu” (Once a dog, always a dog).  Our clansmen have attended reenactments, treks, encampments & games in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio & Pennsylvania.

Our membership is drawn primarily from the states of Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida. We are one of the Southeastern United States’ only groups purposefully engaged in recreating Highlander culture in the 1730’s and 1740’s. Contact us for further information.
