The purpose of the Southeastern Kentucky Blacksmith's Association (SKBA) is to promote blacksmithing, educate people in the blacksmith trade, and preserve the ancient art and skills of the blacksmith. The association is affiliated with the Artists Blacksmith's Association of North America (ABANA). It is also associated with the Kentucky Corps of Longriflemen. The blacksmiths reenact along side of the Colonel Ben E. Caudill Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans as an ancillary support organization to include ordinance (one can see the cannon in the background and the colors of the Camp flying over the blacksmith headquarters)
