Hey Pat,

Are you fed or reb> Or both? Let me know I have contacts for both sides if you wish. We may run into each other now!!!!!!

Hi Pat,

If you can give me a little more information into what type of unit you are looking for, I can give you little better idea of of the units and contact information for those units that are located in the Madison area.

You have your choice of infantry, artillery, cavalry and civilian groups that are all close to and within an hour of Madison.

You also have a choice of mainstream, progess, and hardcore units.

I see from your signature that you were with the 1st MI.

Please let me know your interests and I will glading be more specific with my information.

I have many varied interests. Artillery has always been one of them. I have previously stuck to an infantry impression, but would liketo expand my horizons and try new things. If you have any need for dismounted cavalry that would be interesting too. I most of all enjoy the camaraderie of hanging out\drilling with interesting educated people!

Thanks for helping our group get started, good luck finding a new unit.

I know it has been mentioned, but I would highly recommend any of the member units/messes in the Old NorthWest Volunteers (ONV).
