    Re: The Race to Knoxville

    Just a few notes on the spring tactical:

    The Confederate company numbers will be limited. Capt Kiev Thomason's company will be primarily preserved for the Armory Guards. The max number will be set at 30. East Tennessee Authentics are requested to enlist in Capt Jeff Noland's company. The max number for Co C will be 25 rifles.

    Our good friend, W Decker, will be present for the weekend for ambrotypes or ferrotypes. Time will be allowed for images as the weekend allows. The federals may have the market on time, as they will be garrisoned or near the fort for the weekend. Confederates will have ops on Sunday, I am sure.

    There will also be a historical lecture, by William “Dewey” Beard, in regard to the East Tennessee campaign on Friday evening or on Sunday morning. The times will be nailed down as the date approaches. Dewey is our very own resident expert on the East Tenn campaign. He is published in this area.

    The preservation aspect of our event is still being detailed. Our plan is to contribute to the effort to preserve the following fortification, that is currently on private land.
    There is an earthen fortification that is being preserved or purchased by Knox and Jefferson Counties. The fort is in the Strawberry Plains area. It is near the Holston river. (You may have seen the photos by George N. Barnard.) The fort seen in the background is what we are talking about. The stone railroad structures can still be seen today. Dewey Beard has some great info on this site and the area surrounding. (This fort may be available for authentic living history use in the near future.)

    There are also some great stories about this bridge.
    I will, hopefully, share in the near future.

    Our intent is to make a donation to the effort to preserve this fort, near the bridge.

    Re: The Race to Knoxville

    Fellers,

    We are working on a deal for RD II jackets and Federal Sack Coats for the event. This will be of correct construction and at a great price. Please pay attention to posts, so that you may take advantage of the offerings.

    Also, please check the website for updates and registration.

    We are still planning on a third Confederate company of middle Tennessee men, if posssible. I know that the 2009 calenders ar being plannned, so keep the event in mind. We want to make it worthwhile and there will be special advantages to being on either side.

    The Federal and Confederate sides have some quality folks committed already.

    For those in the WIG looking to go to the SWB's living history program at Antietam an RD II would be a good thing to have.

    Re: The Race to Knoxville

    An update from the federals.

    Jim Butler-Overall Commander

    2nd Michigan
    Co.A SCAR-Capt. Sean Cooper Commanding
    Co.G- Dave Thomas Commanding

    We have some exciting things in the works. Keep those registration coming in. Make sure to note whether you are Co.A or Co. G for the event on your registration form.
    The bread fairy is busy making the bread rations (fresh sourdough bread). There may even be some live chickens running around to supplement those rations (if we can catch them). I can't do much to compete with pies, but I make be able to forage some homemade blackberry jelly that complements that bread to a T. Keep posted for updates.
    There will be a couple of work days coming up when it warms up some (probably in March). We will post those dates later for anyone that can come and help. Thanks for all the support you have shown so far.
