A number of cadets from the Virginia Military Institute Civil War Round Table and Reenacting Unit will be completing the 86 mile march from VMI to the New Market Battlefield this May.
Although we have done this march before, this year we are trying to make it a fund raiser/preservation march by having VMI Alumni and others donate or pledge money for every mile.
50% of all funds raised will go directly to the New Market Battlefield and State Historical Park and the other half will go towards the purchase of much needed equipment for the VMI CWRT (since VMI neglected to provide us with our annual budget).
Since doing this as a preservation march is a first, we would greatly appreciate it if anyone has any advice that could help us with this project. Thank you.
Your obd't serv,
Cadet Michael C. Herron
VMI Class of 2011
