    Re: Vicksburg National Military Park Sesquicentennial Remembrance Living History

    I'm going to contact who I've normally worked with at the park and see what we can't work out in the same tone of what we did there at Life on the Line, but not on Memorial Day weekend. I've been putting together programs on the park since 06, and I would hate to miss out on the 150th. What we had talked about last February was multiple stops, with two sides, and all branches being represented. We'll see if that works out with what they have a budget for or not, but check back at the EBUFU folder in the next couple of days.

    I'm not saying yes or no to anything right now because I don't have dates to go with or the official word from the park. Right now the main federal push would be a Iowa troop headed up by Holler, since this was an idea he and I have talked about for years.

    We are looking at either Iowa or Illinois. I would like to get the OK from the park before we decide on the unit. Eric Fair and I are going to work on the federal stuff.
