The Shire of Iron Springs
Founded by Dame Squeak! in the Fall of 2000, Iron Springs started in Atlanta, Georgia around the Georgia Tech area. The chapter moved around a few times looking for a good location to call home. Then in 2008 there was a major move to Kennesaw, Georgia around the Kennesaw State University area. Coincidentally, years afterward a Dagorhir chapter moved to one of Iron Springs' old Atlanta locations in hopes of finding them.
Iron Springs has been a main staple of Amtgard in the south east. It is one of the original chapters of the Central Eastern Alliance which itself reorganized into the Principality of Winters Edge. In fact, Dame Squeak! was the first Prime Minister of Winters Edge.
Iron Springs had the honour of starting the Amtgard Demo Booth at one of the nation's largest conventions, Dragon Con. This both is now shared with other foam fighting groups in the area and has run consistently for 10+ years.
