I have a question about this "command staff" policy.
After receiving a call from the Federal Commander that explained to me what was going on and what devastation was being caused I immediately addressed the situation. An order was issued immediately that all night operations would cease and no one was to leave the camp the following night (Saturday) for any incursion of any type into the Federal camp. I issued this order, not because I do not like night operations or think they shouldn't happen, rather, I issued it in the interest of safety. It is inherent in the overall command staff of any event to do their best to ensure the safety of every reenactor and equine participant on the event site.
