Re: [War Of 1812] Re: Recreated groups that are represented on the Yahoo 1812 OneList v. 1.0
- Good morning Sally and the list,
I had the mistaken impression that when Dave left this list that there was no longer representation of the company. I have since learned that Bob Dorian is also a member. Proving the dangers of attempting to interpret the increasingly complicated vagaries of this purely informational list. When in doubt, as a good librarian should, I'll default to alphabetical order.
If other units have a sub-identity, i.e. Clemson-Symmes Company or Grenadier Company you are welcome to submit them. For now. I will gather them and when there is enough to justify a posting I'll make it. It might be interesting to see how close the Crown Forces are to the 20% elite company ratio. ;-)
Now, if you want to make sure your unit receives the accolades due it, I'm accepting bribes. This could be in the form of hard cash, goods, or a medicinal beverage at Mississinewa. Regrettably that will be my only big 1812 event of the year. So start the bidding, and bid often! I can be bought!
Michael Mathews, tongue firmly in cheek

Initially, the original notation of the 1st US Infantry on the list of
recreated units represented our unit of the 1st US Infantry.
Inadvertantly, by adding Walt Raisner's 1st US infantry group as
Stark's Company, our unit representation was dismissed from this list.
So therefore, please now add Clemson's Company before Starks.
Please give my regards to your lady,
1st Us Infantry - Clemson - Symmes Company
