Thanks to Mike Miller of the 154th Tenn. for hosting another successful march along the historic and scenic I&M Canal in Channahon, IL . The weather was unseasonably warm and it was a fine opportunity to stack arms , drill , bile coffee , munch on hardtack and march . March...just like the real heroes of '61 to 65 did . We marched eight miles ; a mere stretch of the limbs for the armies then.
Perhaps next year we we can take up a collection and purchase a new hat for Mike to show our appreciation . Thanks .
All for the old flag ,
David Corbett , 10th Illinois Vol. Inf.
