female cannoneer looking for new battery
Hey everyone, this is Rita. I live in the Kansas City area and am wanting to join a battery (preferably a Union battery). I have 2 years of experience and have attended the NCWAA School of the Piece (at Jefferson Barracks).
"What a variety of hideous noises. The ping of the minie ball, the splutter of the canister, the whistling of the grape, the 'where are you', 'where are you' of screaming shells and the cannons roar from a hundred mouths went to make up the music for the great opera of death"
