  • Mustering In, 1861 September 23-25, 2011 Harris Homestead near Monroe, Ga.

    What: “Mustering In, 1861”

    When: September 23-25, 2011

    Where: Harris Homestead, near Monroe, Georgia (site of Return to the Ranks 2005 and Prelude to Chickamauga)

    Who: Armory Guards

    POC: Herb Coats - Menion687 at aol.com

    The Plan: “Mustering In 1861” at the Harris Homestead in Walton County, Georgia – September 23-25, 2011: Early-war Confederate company muster, Company level drill, (early war confusion!) A-frame tents set up along the company street.

    This event will have a similar feel to the “Return to the Ranks” event from 2005. The impression is Company H, 11th Georgia Infantry. The Walton Infantry.

    Herb Coats, Lewis Robinson, and Jordan Roberts have the military command and Kiev Thomason has graciously accepted to head up the commissary.
    We are working out the impression guidelines, but civilian clothing, gray military frock coats, dark colored military trousers, flintlock muskets, smooth bore muskets, and “heavy” camping are all encouraged.

    This is the event to “stump” for an NCO position! Fire Breathing Secessery Speachify’n is encouraged! More information will be forth coming so please stay tuned!!!!!! This looks like it will be the second Max Effort Armory Guards event of 2011. Thanks all!

      Registration will open May 25, 2011. The fee will be $20. I will be adding the registration form to the website in between now and then. Also more research regarding Company H, the Walton Infantry will be put up as well. Participants are encouraged to bring A frame tents, tent flies, (no Federal shelter halves please), mattress ticking, and "heavy camping" items.

            Skip, they are allowed. The checked trousers, by themselves, may be voted in as an NCO.

            Also, who likes bayonet drill? With targets!!!

                  The Carolina Rifles will throw it's support behind this event as well. It will be a good chance for the SE organizations to meet up.

                      Gents, thank you for the positive thoughts for the event. The way that Kiev describes the meal/BBQ he is planning for Saturday evening, all who sample the foodstuffs will blast off into another world. Or something like that.

                        This sounds like something I'd like to be apart of...but is it strictly military?
                        what'r the guidelines as far as that

                            Also, Robby Mitchell and I are "doing our homework" regarding the makeup of the population of Walton County. We hope to have some information posted soon as pre event reading for those who are attending.

                            Registration is open, by the way, so let's keep the forms coming in folks.

                            Thanks again!

                              Georgians.... Georgians.... please lend me your ears.

                              I am going to be flying from DC to Atlanta for the event and am looking for a ride to and from the event from the Atlanta-Hartsfield Airport. I'm arriving at approximately 2:30pm on Friday September 23 and then need to be at the Airport by 3:00pm on Sunday September 25 for my return flight. If you think you can help out and keep me from being a burden on the event organizers, please drop me a line at pete.berezuk@gmail.com.

                              Thank You... you can have your ears back now.
                              Your Obedient Servant,
