I’m attaching a letter I will be sending out to the unit representatives that have attended over the years. I’m sending this out via US Mail because so many emails have bounced back… I’m concerned about whether they’re getting blocked since it was a mass email I sent… and whether we’ll have much participation… I’ll be sending the registration form as well, so I’m attaching that as well.
We really need/want a strong turnout because the fort will be filmed and featured in the Hampton Roads award-winning series on Historic American Wars on the Peninsula. We’re the final feature in the series so we really want to give them a great show!
I’m very concerned about the lack of registrations we’ve received at this point. It’s always a scary thing just before the early registration deadline but the numbers are ridiculously low this year… except for the big guns… they’re good! a few, very few cavalry and hardly any infantry…please help spread the word that we need and want them!!
New Market is the same weekend and we’ve lost a couple of sutlers who have inquired about the event to the NM event. Please let your favorite sutlers know about the web site if they can and want to attend.
I have Fort Pocahontas flyers but did not order as many this year and will be glad to send those to whoever can use them and get them out to related businesses to help advertise. However, it is also on the web site for you to print.
Thanks to all for your help getting this year’s event together!

Any one wishing to come please email email@example.com and I will forward your info. Or call the above number or email Joe as well. This years battle is being filmed and a strong turn out would be great. The fort is on the original site and backs up to James river and is worth the weekend. Also if there are any sutlers that would like to come please do and let them know. You will find all info needed on the website..Thank you .
