The side seam of this oil cloth bag appears very thick. Maybe Ross' keen eyes and knowledge can figure out what it is?
The USSC had ration bags that were oiled. Also the May haversack was made from a Federal double-bag knapsack.
Even though my home unit here in Richmond VA is considered mainstream (44th Virginia / 25th Ohio), several of us are more progressive. 6 of us also attend campaigner events across the country. If...
Geesh, and I thought Secure Arms was bad.
Mrs. Lawson, close your eyes and ears for a moment please. I don't want to go in time-out.
"Meanwhile, let's solve problem 1. Is this fabric 100% wool? If it is not, you do not...
I mentioned it for clarity, because when you go to Mr. Sullivan's website I linked to with the photo, the first thing you see is his discussion about cloth. Also while he is well known for the...
Yes, travel safe. I'll leave Friday morning and get there mid-day to start looking for Ms. Lawson.
I'll be there, blue.

Don't ask me, I still look from time to time. I'd say when they can't fit in the steamer trunk anymore (mine is almost full). And don't ask me how many I have, if my wife has an accurate...
Yea, it just got better.
Yep, wife too, Federal, AFB (Army of the French Broad River, Lance Dawson's group) & the Henry's. I'll be with my mainstream group.
Hey I still use the punctuation marks, so if it doesn't convert oh well. Like gifts at Christmas, its trying and the thought that counts.
One of these days we'll get together at an event and...
Even though I'm spoken for, everybody needs love, not just us Mikes. :)

I hope the changeover that he spoke of works for everyone involved. The only thing I've noticed is the time of posts is wrong. As I write this, it is 1:29 pm EST.
7tharkinf, there is always more to learn. I've been back in the hobby for 10 years, and I pick things up here and there often. When time allows, I also look over written accounts or diaries. I've...
Ask your pards what they do. We do this for 3-5 days at a time, so guys that have been in the hobby for years will have ideas that work for them and other ideas that aren't so goo. While I've...
Call David at Lodgewood. Not only can he defarb it for you, but will probably have the spare parts you need.
