The 6th NC of the Carolina Legion is kicking around the idea of going to McDowell next May.  They have invited us to join them for the event.  Twenty or so rifles will make for a company.  A bunch of folks went a few years ago, and short of getting rained out, it was a good time. 

Pocotaligo is January 21st & 22nd.  US Col. Benjamin C. Christ's troops skirmish with Confederate pickets guarding the Charleston to Savannah railway.  See original earthworks on site constructed in 1862 under the supervision of General Robert E. Lee.
