    Chaplains were commissioned officers, so there was no "dual role" to fill. The duties of chaplain were poorly defined and chaplains were not considered noncombatants. This means that they were...

    Civil War registration fees are in no way outrageous or onerous. Even a tent site will cost you more for a weekend. Sorry, you'll have to start the revolution without me.

    If memory serves, artillery often slept under the guns, ad slung wagon covers as tentage. Depending on time and place, neither may be things your recreated battery may do. Find out their camping...

    What about that Allen C Redwood drawing of the Confederate standing by a cannon. Is that the kind of flopped you're looking for?

    Technology may solve the problem for us; how many smartphones have a battery life of more than one day anymore? Sure, Saturday's battle is SoL, but if you're still there on Sunday, you're golden. :)

    Well, that may be. I've already tipped my hand that I'd taken a shortcut, but that was by design. I gotta agree with Bill that there isn't really much reason to sew a haversack, at least for most...

    Discreet texting in the privacy of your own tent, or reading on an e-device late at night doesn't bother me. Frankly, it's safer for the rest of us than reading by candlelight. If someone can't sleep...

    I dunno, Ross. Maybe I really am more competent than I give myself credit for being. It just didn't seem that hard. On the other hand, I had the buckle and strap already; I didn't put a liner in it,...

    Yeah. Unless you have a quantity of canvas on hand already, and really like to sew, it's not worth it. I happened to have the strap and buckle from an old haversack, and it was before the internet...
