AOT Named Official Host of the 150th Battle of Shiloh

The Armies of Tennessee is pleased and honored to announce that it has been formally designated by the Mayoral Offices of the City of Savannah and Hardin County, The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce along with its Convention and Visitor's Bureau, and the State Legislature of Tennessee as the official host of the 150th Anniversary Battle of Shiloh. This national event will take place on [FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]March 30th–April 1st, 2012 at the same location of the highly successful 140th & 145th Anniversary Battles of Shiloh. [/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS][/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]The location is approximately six miles south of Shiloh National Military Park, in the Southside community. With great success, the two past events brought hundreds of additional visitors and increased revenue into Hardin County. The announcement was received with great optimism, that a third national event held at the same location would garner even more attention. As such, the AOT appreciates the confidence with which the governing officials have expressed in its abilities and welcomes the challenge of making this event a major success. [/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS][/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]With discussion of a week long celebration leading up to the anniversary battle, the potential to boost local revenue and history awareness will greatly encourage local [/FONT][FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]participation. While revenue for the county is extremely important, the main goal of the Armies of Tennessee is to educate and preserve heritage. A school day is set for Friday, March 30th, 2012 so that schools in the surrounding area can experience history coming to life.[/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS][/FONT][FONT=@Arial Unicode MS][/FONT]
[FONT=@Arial Unicode MS]The 150th Anniversary Battle of Shiloh promises to be a great event for Savannah, Hardin County and the great State of Tennessee. It may seem early, but mark your calendars now as this is sure to be an event to be remembered. Please refer to the 150th Shiloh Registration link to reserve your unit's place in this historic national event. [/FONT]

These two units are recruiting, so if one is so inclined to join a Confederate Unit that Galvanize Union when appropriate--this may be the unit to join. I highly recommend them.

Will you be there Mr. Wolf?
I'll try to be there.

If so--will be around the CSA Head-quarters of General Stepp and Staff, to which I am a volunteer (not in uniform) -- if not might be visiting Head-quarters of Colonel Smith's 26th NCT, if I'm not elsewhere...like air conditioning, ice pickup or port-a-johns, or at the Chirography Presenation (which is "internal" Regimental access only).

8301 Willis Church Road, Richmond, Virginia

2nd Annual Battle of Nash Farms (and Lovejoy Station)
Quick Story:
Last year the host unit, (30th Georgia Company E.), only had 6 weeks to pull the event off, as their sponsor bailed last minute. The unit borrowed $5,000 from a local friend, promising him 1/4 of the earnings and his money back. Also, the county mandates a portion of the profits . Even through that, the 30th Georgia made over 1k in profit.
Moral of the story:
It is an amazing event with bathrooms, showers, an indoor ball with amazing music, 2 amazing battles, and PLENTY of spectators. Come on out and visit us at Nash Farms, Jonesboro, Georgia the last weekend of September.

AUGUSTA KENTUCKY 2017.

Once this one 150 stuff is over with, or near over, I am hankerin to try my hand AGAIN, at event organization. Yes, I am a masicist.. :banghead: The confederate force will be both mounted and dismounted, and I will have a guideline that will make some my enemy for life. (as if that has not happened already) :D

Guide Lines: Impressions should be late 62. This skirmish/battle was part of the Heartland Campaign for Ky. Basil Duke on orders from J.H. Morgan attempts to use Augusta as the place to ford his forces, which is primary the 2nd Kentucky Cav. CSA, along with a section of 12lb mountain howizers. The idea for for Basil to raid Ohio toward Cincinnati to disrupt and draw away defenders in Northern Ky. that were facing Morgan, and 8,000 confederate infantry and artillery under Kirby Smith. However, at Augusta were federal patrol boats, each armed with a 12lb gun and around 125 Augusta Home Guard. The Col. of the guard decided to fight with the aid of the gunboats. The confederate thought it would be a easy victory. When the smoke cleared 45 minutes later. The federal boats had fled, the confederates were out of ammunition, many of the buildings had been shot point blank by cannister, and shot, and anywere between (reports vary) 64 to 105 dead and wounded lay bleeding on the grounds and in the houses of Augusta. The Home Guard was captured and taken with Basil, and at Brookville Ky. Union forces almost caught the Confederates by surprise, but did recapture almost all of the Home Guard from Augusta.

Confederate Dismounted Guidelines for Impressions. Dismounted will be armed with single shot muskets, or single or double barrel muzzle loading shotguns (long guns) only. No pistols for the dismounted, exception is officers. No yellow trimmed uniforms, no kepis, no sabres except officers and all will have spurs. Looking for slouch hats, and other broad brimmed hats, sack coats, and depot jackest of various types, some commutation jackets, civilian, and depot trousers, brogans, civilian period shoes and or boots are fine. I prefer period material, weave, and hand stitching around button holes. Actual guidelines (I may require the above) will be posted later within 3 years of said event. Proper cartridge boxes WITH tins.

Mounted Cavalry Guidelines for Impressions. Period equipment is prefered, no cowboy saddles or boots. Pistols and short muskets, and muzzle loading shotguns are fine. Sabres are fine, but prefer to have them in smaller numbers. NO kepis, no yellow trimed uniforms. The guidelines as Dismounted for uniforms are the same.

Federal Guidelines: Federal Infantry has some ledway for this event. Frock coats, State coats, sack coats, all are welcome, kepis, forage hats, slouch, prefer black, and Hardee hats are fine. Weapons All model Springfields 1816, 1842, 1841, 1855, 1861, along with the 53 Enfield are welcome. If all you have is a 63 Springfield, I can let that pass.
Trousers, dark blue, light blue, or even civilian can work. Proper cartridge boxes of various types WITH tins. Also period construction, and hand stitched buttonholes are highly prefered.
Also Federal Naval Impressions are welcome. We hope to have a gunboat for you to play on, and a period shore party and small camp is welcome too.

Have not decided if this will be a two day or one day event. Living history set ups are extremely welcome. Camps will be period, but there will be a camp of convenence set up away from the period camps. Campaign style for the Confederates, Garrison style for the Federals.

The event will be organized for 300 confederate Cav. and or dismounted troops, and 125 or so Federal Infantry, also a role will be played for Federal Naval forces. Be looking for One 12lb federal gun (naval dalgren carrige if I can find one), and two 12lb Mountain Howizers for the Confederate forces. Love to see them horse drawn if possible. As of now I have no plans for paid registration. And mtd. Cav will recieve some preference due to thier high cost in travel.

More on this as I get going. I thinking of doing 1 quality event about every two years. Giving back the the hobby and reenactors I have spent the last 37 years with.

Pards....

Raymond,
