First forum posting ever, long story short: I'm an equestrian artist interested in learning about and accurately portraying the operation of a CW battery in the field before or after an action; especially how the teams were manuevered into position, left the field, forded a stream, etc. Would like to get advice on sources or relatively nearby units who might let me observe a drill. (I'm in Columbus, GA and 500 mile radius is relatively nearby). I've read the recent threads about what types and size horses were used and was greatly enlightened. I stumbled across the Perryville battle by chance last fall and got bitten by the bug.
