To the Washington County Militia,
Good morning everyone. I hope you all are doing well.
Many thanks to those who came out to Walnut Grove this past weekend. It was an
excellent event, and we were received very well. Captain John Moss of the SC
Rangers was so happy to see us and wished to convey his gratitude to all who
We will be participating as a unit at The Bogart-Bowman
Cabin in Unicoi, TN on Saturday
the 15th of October. They are planning a school day for Friday the 14th. Please let
me know ASAP if you can participate in the school day and what you will
They want to have a trial again on that Saturday. This year they want to try a
woman with suspicions of being a witch. Should be very interesting. Other than
that we will be doing militia drill and artillery demonstrations throughout the
day. Even though it is only a Saturday event we have permission to camp both Friday and Saturday night. This will serve as our October Muster. They
treat us very well and it is always a fun and relaxing event, so I hope to see
Camden SC will be Nov. 5 & 6. I will be registering
us very soon. If you plan to go I need to know if you are going to camp and if
so your tent type and size.
That’s all for now.
MOLLYNOTE: Major Bogart sent a report about their doings at Walnut Grove this past weekend. As soon as I can come up for air (Fall Break and not a moment too soon!), I will be sure to post it and my September Muster notes as well.
