The ceremony should last two hours, with men arriving at noon for the procession, starting at 1. If wanting to stay for the tour, that should be another hour. RSG

How long will it last? As I'm certain you know, Sunday is race day. I'm happy to help if I can make it back to the Bucket to watch the race. Also, I haven't received the schedule yet for my Army Reserve unit. I assume that it'll be the first weekend of the month as it has been but that may be a factor. I'll know more this weekend, which is this month's weekend where I go to defend freedom.

The rededication of the Prescott Post Cemetery will be on November 12, at 12:00 pm. I have been tasked with the raising of a Federal platoon to help in the dedication. The cemetery is located right of 95 in Providence. This is an event we should all go out and accomplish, to remember the old fellas. Nearly 1500 CW vets are in the burial ground, and 500 are in the plot, which has been largely ignored. I am almost imploring for men to come to this hollowed site to honor and remember what they did. If you can make it, PLEASE contact me at rgrandchamp40@ aol.com
or 401-474-4889. This is not one about having a fancy handsewn uniform or other details, just a musket and a sack coat. As an added bonus, I will lead a tour of the cemetery to visit some of the more famous or forgotten soldiers, including at least fifty men who died in the war, two generals, and a slew of others. Please forward this to anyone you know, willing to attend. Thank you, Robt. Grandchamp
