View Full Version : We're raising a company of "Suckers" for Shiloh
Seth Graves (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Black Jack Mess, and myself, Tim Ruyle (email@example.com), are raising a Federal Infantry Company for the 150th Shiloh event based on the 18th Illinois. We are requesting, but not requiring, a state jacket of some sort i.e. Illinois, Spaulding, Ohio, etc., an Enfield (those with Springfields, or smoothbores are accepted), and a forage cap. However, folks with only sack coats or frock coats are also welcome. Even though we are targeting an Illinois company we welcome participants from other states. We have a full size Sibley tent to stay in. Randy Jackson is going to be our captain and I will serve as orderly.
We are falling in with the Western Federal Blues. Registration is available on their website (westernfederalblues.org). Feel free to email Seth, or myself with any questions.

I know there is a lot of competition with the boat ride and the train ride...but if you are looking for a good campaigner minded company to fall in with, this is a great choice!

Tim, I tried the 18th Ill. proboard from work. I got as far as it wanting my registration number, or some such, which it said it would send me in an E-mail if I did not have one. Needless to say, I did not get any E-mail with this or any other number. So, I am still interested in joining the 18th at Shiloh, just keep me in touch with what I need to do, where to go, or how much I need to pay. Thank you sir,

Randy, that's odd...I'm sorry about that. I will check into the board again today to see if I can find out something about it. You need to get registered through the Western Federal Blues website at: http://www.westernfederalblues.org/html/shiloh_2012.html
That should get your right to it...and again sorry about the board problems.

Just a reminder to check out the Western Federal Blues page and sign on with the 18th Illinos. Knock the dust off the state jacket and rally 'round the flag once again!
