To the Washington Co. Militia,
Just a reminder that Unicoi Heritage Day is this Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Historic Bogart-Bowman Cabin in Unicoi, TN. Even though this is a one day event, we have permission to set up camp on Friday and stay until Sunday. Bathroom and shower facilities will be open for our use the entire weekend.
This is an 1812 event for us, but if you do not have 1812 clothing or gear do not worry. Come in colonial kit. This is a laid back event. We will be presenting camp life, militia drill, and artillery demos. We will also do a couple of duels throughout the day, so bring your pistols. 😉
***ATTENTION, THOSE WHO ARE MAKING PLANS TO GO TO NEW ORLEANS IN 2015. PLEASE WEAR YOUR 1812 CLOTHING AND GEAR. WE WILL BE TAKING PHOTOS TO SEND TO THE MILITIA COMMANDER THERE.
Hope to see you there. As always if you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact me at any time.
