We should set up by about 8 a.m., with an opening set for 9 a.m. If anyone wants to pitch some canvas as last year, that will be ok, just keep in mind not to use too much space so others can't do the same. If we get enough bodies, we can also form a unit and march in the parade. Craig Poundstone will bring a cannon for display as was done last year. All Union, Confederate, Civilians, Infantry and Artillery are welcome. We will tear down no later than 4 p.m. (or earlier if you wish to skedaddle). Call Rick Barram for questions or commitments to attend. If you need loaner gear you must let Command know ahead of time!

coupled with increasingly advanced maneuvers at this non-public event.
Especially useful for novice reenactors. Friday setup is OK. Firing muskets is
