This update comes to you on an off weekend.  March 5th & 6th is Broxton's Bridge down near Walterboro.  It's not a Battalion affiliated event, but could count as the one "other" event necessary for voting priviledges.   March 12th & 13th is The Columns in Florence.  It is affiliated and in my humble opinion the best reenactment you could attend.  National evens with thousands of soldiers are so over-rated.  Links to both events can be found in the Event Schedule.

Please consider the Battle of Resaca on May 21st & 22nd.  We've been invited to fall in with the Cotton States Brigade under General Rambo.  The color of the day would be blue.  More information can be found at their website.

Perryville is October 8th & 9th of 2016.   Althought that's still a long way off, there are a couple of registration deadlines.  The first one is the end of 2015.  Until then, it's $12.  From 1/1/2016 until 9/20/2016 it will be $20.  There's a break for pogies.  If you plan to take a canon and be Confederate, you HAVE to contact them first.  Check their website for more info.  BTW, how far is Perryville?  Yours truely made it in 7 hours from Murrells Inlet.  There's a set of maps in the 23rd's Map Room.
