To Arms!

Volunteers Wanted for Service in the
44th Tennessee Consolidated Infantry

A company of Stout Hearted Southrons is now being formed in the Washington Civil War Association to represent this famed regiment of Bushrod Johnson’s Tennessee Brigade.

A campaign style unit! Live the life of a soldier on campaign, not a pretender huddled in a winterquarters tent - in July. Learn how campaign style camping can be more luxurious than the perceived comfort of tent and cot. See my article entitled, "Less is More" which appeared in Camp Chase Gazette. .

Live a soldier's life! Wear jeancloth, shoulder your musket, carry your gear, and drill according to the Musket Drill. Survive on sow belly, hardtack, corn meal, and coffee. See, Authenticity Standards for the unit. Where can I purchase some of this stuff? Click here for the Resources Page on the Authentic Campaigner site.

Blaze a trail that others will follow. Make your mark and bring history alive. For more information, contact Mark (Silas) Tackitt; P.O. Box 46330, Seattle WA 98146 - 0330; 206/682-7566.
