    BACKGROUND

    “I suppose these expeditions into the country, without any apparent object in view, were planned for the purpose of ascertaining if any considerable force of the enemy was in our immediate vicinity, and may be looked upon as wise precautions taken by the commanding officers to prevent surprises upon and consequent disaster to our troops; but as I remember the thoughts of an enlistedman at the time, they seemed to be for the sole purpose of reminding us that we were in the field for active duty, and were expected to be marching or fighting most of the time.” -Lt. P.S. Chase, Battery F, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery

    1st Section is hosting a fully immersive Soldier Life Experience event along the North Carolina coast. We will portray Company M, 3rd New York Cavalry, supported by 1st Section, Battery F, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery, on a many miles long patrol into the North Carolina countryside beyond New Bern in March 1863. This event is BY INVITATION ONLY and will adhere to STRICT authenticity standards. All participants are expected to look and act like 1863 troopers and artillerymen from the New Bern garrison. The focus will be on the minutiae of military life—horse care, camping, cooking, riding, and vidette duty—a day in the life of a soldier!

    Rations: Food for both horse and man matching exactly what was provided to the units being portrayed will be issued. All participants must arrive with an empty haversack.

    Registration: Fee will be $65 for all participants. You must register and send a PayPal payment “to a friend” to 1stSectionArtillery@gmail.com.
