Notes

Portrayal

We will be portraying the 35th Alabama Infantry, Company E. This event is an April of 1862 event, so early war impressions are encouraged.

 

Registration

Registration is $5.00 until March 15th, when it will be raised to $10.00.

 

Event Location

Event location is;

            2361 County Rd 255, Bridgeport, AL  35740

 

Camp

We will attempt to secure the same campground we have held for the last few years, located up the road a bit and through the woods, usually placed behind artillery cannons. Regulation style camp layout is preferred, but we will see how the ground is when we get to the event.

 

Tactics

We will be following William J. Hardee’s Rifle and Infantry Tactics.

 

Ammunition

There will be two battles, one on Saturday, and one on Sunday. Have at least 40 cartridges per battle, preferably wrapped in arsenal packs.
