Details:

  • Full uniform, musket and accoutrements will be needed. We will be firing muskets from time to time so be sure to bring rounds and caps also.
  • I'll have an A-Frame and two dog tents to set up along with the large canvas fly to put the recruitment table under and to provide shelter and from the sun. It's not absolutely necessary but you can bring a tent of your own if you like as long as it's not a wall tent.
  • If you have cartridge rolling equipment bring it. This will be a good opportunity to get a jump on rolling rounds for Gettysburg and to teach those who don't yet know how to do so. I'll bring a box of precut rolling paper for anyone who needs it.
  • The original Confederate 10lb Parrott Cannon will be onsite and in need of a 5-8 man crew to fire it. We'll do this every hour on the hour if allowed. Let me know if you're interested in filling one of the remaining open positions.
  • In an attempt to receive better exposure, if allowed, our presentation will take place out front between the store building and main road instead of in back as in previous years.
  • Food Vendors will be on site throughout the day providing food and refreshment at a nominal cost.
  • A cooler of cold bottled water will be on hand for those who need it along with a good cold watermelon or two for refreshment.

Both served in Co E of the 3rd Inf Regt of the SC Reserves.

A musket detail will be needed for presenting a three volley salute. Also, Vernon will need an artillery crew to help with the cannon salute. If you haven't already please let me know if you can help and if you'll also be attending the church service at 9:30 am as I'm planning doing. The Campbell Family has extended an invitation for our group to do so.

Full uniform, musket and accouterments will be needed along with a few rounds and caps.

Jul 28 (Sat) - C Company Cookout


Members of C Company, Our Co Cookout has been set for Sat, July 28. All members and their families are all invited and encouraged to come take part. The Howle Family, good friends of Russell Young, have graciously agreed to let us use their farm property again in Patrick, SC for this cookout. The cookout will begin at 3:00 pm with Russell providing the main course of grilled franks and hamburgers. Buns for both will be needed along with mustard, ketchup, chili, slaw, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and dill pickles. Everyone is asked to bring a favorite side dish. I'm planning bringing a pan of home cooked baked beans covered with french fried onions. I'm just hoping they're able to survive the trip over intact. Other things that will be needed are ice, soft drinks, cups, utensils, paper plates, and napkins. Please let us know what food item you'll be bringing so we don't have an over abundance of one particular thing. If you have outdoor games such as horseshoes, frisbee, corn hole toss, or anything of like nature please bring them.
As is always, it's important we do have a headcount for this event. Please make it known sometime soon as to whether you plan to attend or not.
NOTE: There are few physical addresses in this area recognized by GPS devices including the address of this event. One close by exception though is that of 111 Bethlehem Rd, Patrick, SC 29584. This address is easily recognized by GPS and can be used to bring you within the immediate vicinity of our cookout location.
Once you've reached 111 Bethlehem Rd don't stop but continue driving southeast on Bethlehem Rd for a short distance of about 1/8 of a mile until you see the Christian Flag posted on your right. Turn into the gate entrance here and follow the dirt road ahead continuing left around the pond until you arrive at the cookout location. For a better understanding of how to get there, download an arial view of the location by using the following link…

Capt GGoins
