That particular issue was primarily why our unit, formerly Good's/Douglas' Texas Battery became The North Texas Reenactment Society and mainly Federal or at least mixed-impressions. At some (mostly National) events a few dissenters would serve with friendly units on the opposite side.Here our battalion officers, (been officers for 20 years or more) decide on galvanizing in one of a few ways:
1. Certain companies that always voluntarily galvanizes.
2. Ask a few other company officers to volunteer their units so the usual suspects can go Confederate once or twice a year.
3. If a unit comes along that doesn't wish to play politics at an event the battalion controls, they go Federal.
4. In recent years make the whole battalion go Federal after inviting another organization to come out. The idea being they'll come back more often so our numbers are good. (THAT can't possibly backfire can it!)
