October 3rd-5th, 2008
To portray 4th MN garrison at Allatoona
Registration Fee- $10.00 (covers food and any extra will be donated
to preservation efforts at Allatoona Pass)
To provide the public a glimpse at what the Men of the 4th MN
experienced while garrisoned at Allatoona Pass
To raise money for various funds related to the Allatoona Pass
Soldiers will experience normal duties associated with being
garrisoned in Enemy territory at a vital position on a Federal Supply
To give the spectators a glimpse into the garrison at Allatoona Pass,
tours will be lead throughout the day as well as a candle lit tour
that evening. All participants will be asked to stay in first person
through out the day's activities.
Friday the Union living historians will set up in the eastern side of
the pass. The Pass will be open until 11pm. Those arriving after 11pm
will be asked to camp at the base of the pass or in your vehicles, we
will reopen the pass at Dawn. This is for safety reasons; one slip
off the Mountain and your good time is ruined.
On Saturday morning the troops will go through the motions of
preparing for a general assault as well as regular camp duties.
Rations will be issued at this time. Meals will be prepared by the
camp cooks, soldiers will gather wood and water, assemble things
needed for defense and go out on Pickett duty. U.S. Signal Corp will
relay messages to Kennesaw as happened in '64. A candle light tour is
planned that evening.
The tours will be the only way to see the Eastern Redoubt on
Saturday. No aimless wandering by spectators will be permitted. This
is to help soldiers stay in a period mindset as well as keep
Spectators from wandering into off limit areas.
ALL FEDERAL PARTICIPANTS WILL NEED TO BE ON SITE NO LATER THAN 7AM.
US troops will be invited to stay as long as they wish, but from 8AM
until 11AM they we will execute normal fatigue duties.
11am -4pm people will be left to their own device
After 1pm the GDRA Confederate infantry wish to engage in a program
of their own invention. This is completely voluntary to participate
US troops will need to be off site by 4PM.
