    Preservation March and Tactical
    During the early afternoon hours of October 8, 1862 two opposing military forces assembled to engage in what would become knows as the Battle of the Chaplin Hills or Perryville! They fought across a landscape that would forever be changed by their actions. Preservation efforts are on-going at Perryville and large tracts of land upon which the armies engaged are now being actively protected and interpreted.

    If you are a reenacting participant at Perryville’s 150th Anniversary Event you have the chance to assemble with the army and advance to engage in a preservation march and tactical experience that is a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you would like to take advantage of this experience please indicate your intentions on your registration form.

    The preservation march and tactical will start on Thursday afternoon. Registration will open at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday October 4, 2012 and you will be able to complete registration and proceed to the remote locations that will serve as assembly areas for the march. Guidance to these areas will be posted at reenactor registration. The march will commence early on Friday morning and the tactical is expected to last throughout the day on Friday. All branches are highly encouraged to attend. Organizations and individuals are welcome and invited to participate!

    The Union and Confederate forces will enter the tactical area upon routes that have not been used by Civil War soldiers for 150 years. Please help us ensure that these areas are protected. We challenge each and every one of you who are going to participate in this rare venture to donate to http://www.civilwar.org/battlefields...rryville-2012/

    Help us keep history alive – donate now! This Place Matters!
    Thank You,
    Chad Greene

    Default Information about the preservation march

    Preservation March Information
    This is a rare opportunity to participate on historic ground!
    The Perryville 150th Preservation March will begin on Thursday evening October 4. If you are participating please arrive as early as possible. Registration opens at 1:00 at the American Legion Hall in Perryville.

    Once You Register
    Confederate - you will be directed to your parking area and from there you will proceed on foot to your remote bivouac area on the historic Hankla-Goodnight Farm.
    Federal – you will be directed to your parking area and from there you will proceed to your camping areas on private and Civil War Trust land that was used by 1st Corpse as it marched onto the field.

    Remote Camping Areas
    These are bivouac areas. No tents will be put up. We are guest upon these properties so please treat it accordingly. Parts of these areas are in Conversation Resource Management please do not cut any trees of any size. Fires will be very limited and wood will be provided. If you construct a shebang please pack in whatever you’re going to need to do that.

    March Routes
    Both routes into the park are historic routes upon which the respective armies used during the battle on October 8, 1862. These routes are across private property and land recently purchased by the Civil War Trust.

    Can Cavalry and Artillery Participate
    YES – this is a great opportunity for both branches to participate on historic ground!

    How Late Can I Arrive?
    We would advise you to arrive on Thursday afternoon, but you can access the remote sites until midnight on Thursday when tactical maneuvers are scheduled to begin. If you are going to be later than that please make sure you make special arrangements with your overall command staff.

    Tactical Situation
    Once the march leaves private grounds and enters the park proper the tactical will begin. All branches will have the opportunity to participate in field maneuvers over historic land. This is totally unscripted and all movements will follow 19th century military tactics, protocol to reach pre-determined objectives.

    If You Can’t Arrive until Friday, but still want to participate in the tactical.
    Yes you can still participate. The US and CS command staff implemented plans that will allow forces to be added throughout the day on Friday. If your group would like to do that please contact:
    Richard Watters (Southern Division) at richwatters@lazerlink.com
    Micah Trent (Western Federal Blues) at federalslouch@yahoo.com

    Not sure if this is the right place to post but I have something of a dilemma. I would very much like to participate at Perryville however I have just returned to the hobby this summer following a nine year absence and do not currently possess a musket. Impression is Union Infantry, not sure if there is anyway for me to participate.

    The numbers are pretty even as of right now. No lopsided number by any means, which is fantastic! The Friday Scenario is one that has never been done, and most likely, never will be again type deal. It is the MUST NOT MISS event. It is for the reenactors by the reenactors. It's not going to be your typical bang bang shoot'em up. Each army has certain objectives they will have to meet before moving to X location/s. It will be a test to see how well commanders can follow orders and how well soldiers can stand up to the test. I can honestly say if you come with the right mindset and the right attitude, this event will give you some goosebumps! Those who came out for our military meeting back in July can attest to that.
    Saturday and Sunday scenarios will follow as what actually happened there. No fabrication. Actual ground. Actual movements. Cool stuff!
    Not sure who all has registered as far as vendors go. I will look into that and see if I can get a list posted sometime soon.
