We, the Coalition of Historical Trekkers, are dedicated to the preservation and study of the pre-1840 frontier people in America by means of literary research and experimental archaeology. We are historical trekkers, which is to say we are experimental archaeologist, involved in one or more eras of the historical time frame from 1600 to the year 1840. As is the purpose of an archaeologist, to establish facts about a historical people or time period, we establish facts pertaining to the way of life of the pre-1840 frontier people. This is accomplished by experimentation in wilderness situations, using firearms, clothing, and accoutrements, authentic to those used by the early frontier people here in America. We pledge to keep alive the awareness of those brave people who lived and died while carving out a place in the wilderness. We recognize that it was these brave men and women who made it possible for us, and generations to come, to live here in the land of the free-America!
