    The LR is portraying the 20th SC, and is brigaded with 4 other CS campaign/authentic battalions in the Independant Legion, under the Command of Mike Hendricks of the IVR.

    It is looking like we will have over 450-500 members of this brigade, and will be quite a sight to see.

    Anyone looking for a home will not find any better.

    Pards, I have had meetings with Suzanne concerning the campaigner presence at CC this year. At the urging they moved us from down by the creek up to the front. To emphasize what Chris has stated that 400-500 campaigners will be a sight to see. Also, remember that this is an event for preservation! Bully,
