We would love to have you there to shoot at, not many redcoat units in the
deep south. (93rd excepted of course, but does Texas consider itself part
of the south?) I posted something a while back on the event, which is also
listed in Smoke and Fire.
Can provide more details on or off the list if interested.

;-) (I can say that, being a native Texan...)
But just to keep things straight for those who may read all this and not
know, the 93rd is a NATIONAL (oops - make that INTERNATIONAL) unit with
members from Georgia to California (and Thailand!) including some in
Louisiana -- so it's only a hop skip and jump over de bayou for dem, I tell
you dat! And dey wants ta know what be going on wit dat Morgan event, sure
THE Thin Red Line
- Do we want to go and do a dog and pony show,
a shoot-em-up, a full mess dinner, period dance?
Len: In my humble opinion,
why not try for Baltimore
and New Orleans for 2000?!?!?
That is one to the East and
one to the South. Also both
groups have attended events
in our area. Turn about is
I've contacted a couple of local bus touring companies and they are sending me packages on several tours that I have suggested.
I received a site package from New Orleans but thats it. So, I've sent it back with some requests for possible sponsorship and asked for recommendations.I await my snail mail with antisa....(say it)...pation.
Thats it so far,
