The photos I have so far, Im sur emore will surface in a couple days.
I had my first battle event of the season this week. It was fun meeting all my buds again and being out in the field. I have decided this season although I belong to a mainstream club im going to attempt to be as authentic as I can. I think I was the only person on the federal battalion of 100 or so guys to sleep only in a single wool blanket and who carried all of my gear with me into battle. Its kind of annoying being one of the few guys who cares enough about their impressions to do all of this but it also kind of give me a sence of pride of being the only one. Beyond Authenticity I enjoy the challenge of it.
My Federal impression so far. I did some experimentation that turned out well of wearing my gear different. Notice how I have my gum blanket tucked into my belt. All in preparation for Pciketts Mill.
We had an late morning pickett fight scenario. I was more game with trying to convince my officer to let me trade rations across the covered bridge that was just out of shot but sadly to no avail. Both sides were in some steep devil's den rocks rock separated by a river.
Also heres a game of "Find Millander". As a hint im one of the few guys who isn't 12 or out of shape.
