Three lusty huzzahs for the field music! There was some righteous fifing, drumming, and bugling going on in the Union camps. I don't know who all was playing--there were several regimental bands, one not too far from the Regulars camp that I particularly enjoyed listening to Saturday night. I was amazed that they could play so well and for so long in all that heat while my major focus was simply on not passing out. I couldn't imagine playing a musical instrument under those conditions, but they did it. It was great to have you on the field playing during the scenarios too--it really added to the moment. From a lowly private: Thanks, guys!
