      Phil, good to see you writing an article about the event. I read your article about the previous TAG a few years ago. Take the word to the masses.

      Todd Bemis mentioned earlier in this thread that he wrote an article for the Historian. Don't know the status. Maybe he could pop in and give us an update on when we might see it published.

        Hey Greg,
        I forwarded my entries over to Nicky on Monday. He said they might not show up for a couple of issues due to the next one (or two) already being full. I just love getting the magazine. An Outpost article would just be icing on the cake!

          Veterans would tell of Sherman's ordering a flanking movement and instructing a subordinate how to report his progress: "See here Cox, burn a few barns occasionally, as you go along. I can't understand those signal flags, but I know what smoke means"

            With over 3,000 Camp Chase Gazette subscribers, I imagine a fair number of reenactors will read the Outpost article who have, or are developing, an interest in immersive campaign events. You might be surprised how many positive comments I've received about the article in the Camp Chase Gazette I did about Banks Grand Retreat. Maintstreamers and campaigners are not two in two separate solar systems; It's apparent to me that there is a substantial amount of "crossover" activity back and forth. And the campaign side of the hobby will better seduce new crossover "recruits" by not limiting our publicity to the Civil War Historian, the one publication already targeting campaigners.

              I contacted the editorial office at Civil War Historian before Outpost and they said they'd definitely like to have an article about it. I sent in the article over a month ago. I also contacted Don Smith about maps he made for the event to include with the article, and made enquiries about photos.
              After two or three follow up email requests to the editorial office about the status of this submission I have heard nothing back. I actually sent my last email to them today. Later I checked this thread to see that the editor of the magazine is unaware of any submission about Outpost. I don't know what the snafu is. I will email Nicky Hughes directly and see if this can be sorted out.

                    A great, great event! I was the orderly for a company made up of Mess No.1, Liberty Rifles, and the GHTI and a few others. I would love to do that group again.

                      Ken, I remember you guys coming around our flank, and the look on Tripp's face when I informed him that were in an untenable position. I also remember giving one of my finer "hit" performances for your company as well.

                      Jordan Roberts still reminds me how I devoured his whiskey'd up coffee Saturday, and left none for him.

                        One of my top 3 events - in fact my avatar was taken there... Dave and I are looking back toward those pesky rebs coming up the middle :) I will never forget the empty sad feeling we had when 1st Sgt Jason R. was gobbled up by reb cav in the middle of the night when they penetrated the picket line in yank overcoats. First person all the time, superb fidelity, tactics, leadership...great time. Heck, even the end of event march-in and ceremony was epic.

                            The Rebel who made the capture was Ronnie Tucker. We had been riding the same route all night and making sure everyone could hear us and see us. Ronnie just stayed behind while the other riders turned and started away from the Federal line. That was a long cold night made suddenly worthwhile.

                              It was brilliant. From camp we saw you, but not where you had come from, thinking it was parallel to the lines but inside our pickets. Had Ronnie not picked the picket post farthest to our right, the game would have been up, but he chose wisely.
