A few of us, sporting the bright blue uniforms that have been all the rage in downtown DC since the spring of '61, have formed an MP team which challenges the men in nondescript gray to have a battle at Gettysburg to observe the 150th anniversary of that legendary disagreement. Riders to the tents of Maj Ferry and General Stotzenburgh will be passed thru the pickets one time only. We envision the three day extravaganza!
Please organize your team and give us a call.

It is a brevet for brilliant handling of the Fifth Corps in the monster scenario. By authority of US Grant. No, actually the workings of a senile mind.

maybe the southern boys need some inspiration, so here's some william faulkner
Quote:
For every Southern boy fourteen years old, not once but whenever he wants it, there is the instant when it's still not yet two oclock on that July afternoon in 1863, the brigades are in position behind the rail fence, the guns are laid and ready in the woods and the furled flags are already loosened to break out and Pickett himself with his long oiled ringlets and his hat in one hand probably and his sword in the other looking up the hill waiting for Longstreet to give the word and it's all in the balance, it hasn't happened yet, it hasn't even begun yet, it not only hasn't begun yet but there is stll time for it not to begin against that position and those circumstances which made more men than Garnett and Kemper and Armstead and Wilcox look grave yet it's going to begin, we all know that, we have come too far with too much at stake and that moment doesn't need even a fourteen-year-old boy to think This time. Maybe this time with all this much to lose and all this much to gain: Pennsylvania, Maryland, the world, the golden dome of Washington itself to crown with desperate and unbelievable victory the desperate gamble, the cast made two years ago....
