    ...Company K, First Pennsylvania Reserves, has about 20 men planning to attend this event, but (having been a bit spoiled, no doubt, by fielding over 30 for last year's Gettysburg events) we would...
  2. Thanks again for the responses

    I am sharing them with the requesting party, and they are much appreciated.

  3. Thanks!

    Thanks for reminding me of their name. I remember visiting their Website years ago and seeing some of those videos.

  4. Question about Canister fired from 3-inch Ordnance Rifles

    I am hoping we have some N-SSA people here, or anybody, who can answer this question from a friend. He is referring to data he had seen, or heard about, regarding canister fire from those weapons in...

    Sorry for the tardy response

    You might check out, "Play for a Kingdom," by Thomas Dyja. I resisted reading this book for a long time, because I thought the premise was silly. But having said that, once I did get around to it, I...

    ...but a moment does not a weekend make. It speaks for itself that my favorite moment of that event was when the entire Federal force of infantry -- which was about half the size forecast -- was in...

    Oh, I certainly agree. Ditto for last year's Cornfield. My regret is that -- save via YouTube -- spectators rarely get to see this sort of thing.

    I know, and at the same time, I understand why it means so much to those guys to have an experience that is as immersive as possible, and such a thing almost excludes spectators by definition. Having...

    Since belaboring the obvious is a tradition here....

    For most of us, if we don't know what to expect -- good, bad, or funnel cake and all-girl batteries protected by bandidos in sombreros -- by now, we really aren't paying...

    I took some out of town relatives to Gettysburg on Saturday. We had no troubles driving anywhere, no problem parking at the Pennsylvania Monument around 10 a.m. and later around 1 p.m., and waited...

    Estimates of numbers

    I am not one of the organizers of this event, so hopefully you will see a more official estimate shortly. In the meantime, the last numbers I saw were a total of about 9,800 participants, including...

    ...come to the battlefield any time from Sunday evening through Wednesday afternoon, and there will be plenty to see. There will be two whole battalions (one Federal, one Confederate) on the field,...

    The Numbers game

    The grapevine claims that registrations have now surpassed 9,300 for this event, which I think is terrific.

    I don't think the BGA numbers are so bad

    When they held At High Tide, another Gettysburg event, as I dimly recall, they could barely get 1,500 men (only a third of them Confederates) on the field, despite a lot of advertising and good...

    Numbers?

    I saw the names of the battalions, but not any troop tallies.

  17. I may be interested

    I am not a first-timer -- have been in the hobby for 13 years -- but because my battalion, the NR, has a previous commitment to the NPS living history starting that Sunday, I may be homeless that...

    Your eyesight is probably better than mine....

    ...but, in theory, Company K carried rifled Model 1842 Springfields, of which 10,000 had been modified before the war. The sight, of course, is an obvious hint, as I doubt if you got that from the...

    My one cent

    (as I was only there on Saturday).

    1) Nobody in my battalion (the NR), at least, had any idea whatsoever as to the scenario, if there in fact was one.

    2) It seemed a bit silly to be so close...

    Unless I missed something, the map that appears on the Website either shows actual unit positions in 1863, or is not very helpful. Actually, it's not very helpful regardless, and I agree. I will be...

    Why sit out?

    Because -- as I recall -- the last time you were at Chancellorsville, things didn't work out too well for you.

    Chancellorsville estimate

    General, ah, Jackson -- The last estimate I saw for Chancellorsville was around 4,500, which is a decent number -- for the 140th of that battle, we had about 3,000. Having said that, my advice for...
