    Reenactor 1: "Shoo! Shoo you cows!"
    Reenactor 2: "Hey, why not use your bayonet?"

    Zack

    Welcome to the hobby. Mrs. Lawson's advise is excellent. DO NOT buy anything until you've spoken with guys in an established unit. You'll find out the hard and expensive way that you've...

    Thanks Ross. Yes, I'm looking for a contract blouse, not a depot issued coat.

    I've already got an M-3 Stuart that I thought I'd use instead. Do you think that anyone will really know the difference if I paint a French flag on the side?
  10. Sewing Pattern for a Contract Blouse?

    Good morning (unless you're reading this in the afternoon--then, Good afternoon!)!

    I'm looking for good patterns for contract blouses, but after having nosed around a bit I find I'm not having...

    Hello Andrew

    I'm Mel Glover, the Adjutant for the Army of the Ohio, and we've got companies in New York and Ohio, and often fall in with guys from PA.

    Thank you Frank. That's most helpful.



    I think I could have waited until I was mustered out in late '49 or early '50, and this would have been something that by this late date was on everyone's...

    I'm not now portraying a regular. My idea is that I'm portraying an Ohio volunteer who once was a regular. Just like I was in the regular Army back in the 1980s.

    As a sometimes actor, I've...
  15. Regarding Service in the War in Mexico

    I've been working on a little of my personal back-story, to help me explain to myself how a soldier at 50 might have gotten where he was. I figure that I am at the right age to have placed me as a...

    My understanding was that the musicians were formed up as part of the regiment, but not the individual companies. Casey's manual shows this as part of a battalion formation, but I don't recall it...

    I once scraped about ten pounds of Georgia clay off of each one of my brogans. Coulda' used a stick but I was mad and really wanted to get at all of it!

    Encourage questions, and when they ask them, don't just give a short, one sentence answer. Historical anecdotes are wonderful; Shelby Foote never met one that he didn't like.

    As primary source material, Company Aytch might be a little suspect. For example, some of his interactions with high-ranking officers are a bit more frequent than one might expect from a private....

    Bernie, be careful. I think you need a set of staff officer's birds, not infantry.

    Brandon,

    There is a group of reenactors who call themselves the Bohemian Brigade, and they portray reporters and illustrators. Try googling them, and I'm pretty certain that they have a FaceSpace...

    I know that my home company often makes bulk purchases, mostly for our newer guys. We contact several of the big-name, mainstream sutlers and always ask about a discount. Usually, if we order 5 or...
