    Posting this here to spread the word, if you are interested and have a quality western federal impression, there is still time to register. The following info is from the FB page which can be found here:
    Main event page can be found here for registration, directions, rules, and so on:

    In efforts with the Mississippi Stands event, there is an adjuct battalion portraying the 7th Iowa Infantry. This will be be a campaigner battalion only. The event is being held at Brice's Cross Roads National Battlefield Site.

    There are 5 company slots open. If you are intersted in raising a Federal company, please message Chris Jebb. Each company will be capped at 35 guys. If you decide to raise a company and fail to reach at least 22 men, you will be consolidated with another company. Guys are responsible for their own rations, and each man should bring 80 rounds.

    Staff and Battalion structure:

    There are two potential groups coming in as our third and fourth companies.
