March 1-3, Natural Bridge State Park in Woodville Florida, just South of Tallahasse. We will be Union Marines and Sailors. Mess fee is $20 and powder and caps are $35. This is a great small event with lots of time to relax and enjoy the camp. The battles are fun with the Marines attacking from the woods across a creek on the actual battlefield.
March 22-24, National Museum of the Civil War Navy in Columbus Georgia. Www.portcolumbus.org. We will be Marines and Sailors from the USS Pawnee. The museum is fantastic and the camping is nice. There are lots of visitors to educate and entertain and plenty of time to learn and practice the art of being a Marine, with training in marching, bayonet drill, colors, canon drill, and the proper wearing of the uniform. Meals are on your own this weekend. We eat out Saturday night as a group.
April 12-14, Nash Farm Battlefield, 100 Babbs Mill Rd. HaHampton, GA. 30228. We will be Confederate Infantry. Mess will be $20 and powder and caps $35. We will fight on the original battlefield.
