As always, Co. D drilled more often and for longer than other unit in the WCWA and it continues to show. On Sunday we drilled through church call all the way up until battle. Keep in mind, for some absurd reason Sunday drill has now somehow become optional. Not for Company D, where we have higher standards. We started having our corporals leading drill for their individual platoons which paid off greatly during battle. While battalion was looking the other way and being generally passive, 2nd Platoon took the initiative by sprinting across the right flank to capture a cannon and its artillery crew while 1st Platoon continued to hold down the flank with withering Sharps fire. Our corporals and our privates remain unparalleled in their enthusiasm and dedication. We also had the pleasure of having Logan from the 3rd Michigan join us this weekend on the target rifle. It is always nice to welcome such knowledgeable and friendly guests into our reenacting family.
The weather cooperated until the end of our last battle when the rain finally came. It was a bit disappointing to see so many reenactors bringing cars into camp and packing up long before the rain came. The constant breeze kept us cool but unfortunately made making videos out of the question. We do have many exciting new videos coming up including several from our new channel sponsor! I'll leave you with the tease on that one.
It's hard to believe another season is over. We have all sorts of projects for this off season and hopefully we'll be able to organize a get together. We're also hoping the winter is mild so we can have a spring bivouac. During this event we mapped out our company Hainesworth wool buy, so if you are interested be sure to email Cpt. Whitehall. Bulk wool purchasing means we get increased discounts. Until next time, keep checking in on the website and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for all of our upcoming videos.
Finally,our company treasurer's report shows that we have now raised enough money for our National Colors! Next year we'll have the pride of flying both flags in camp and on parades.
It was a pleasure serving with you all!
