Alan Phister – started reenacting in 1992. His first time periods were Indian War and Civil War cavalry. Over the last 24 years he has attended reenactments all over the county as cavalry. His equestrian skills and level of authenticity continues to bring invitations for him to attend a myriad of events. He has been involved with the 1840 fur trade era reenacting since 1995. He has been involved with the Fort Bridger Rendezvous since that time and took first place in the Mountain Man run competition this year. His knowledge and skill level is a huge asset to the Fort Buenaventura Mountain Men as he is always first to volunteer and share his abilities.
