After disussions with our own leaders and the leaders of the Washigton Light Infantry in SC, we decided to change our Battalion name out of respect for the current WLI. They've had the name for a very long time as a fraternal military organization with pride and honor and we respect that.
Therefore, after some discussion and some very creative ideas, our new battalion will be called The Chesapeake Volunteer Guard or CVG. Since this group will do both US and CS impressions depending on the event and has members both North and South of the Mason Dixon Line, we felt the Chesapeake was symbolic of our battalion in how the Bay geographically brings North and South together.
