I do not yet know the event closing time on Sunday but would hazard a guess of 2 or 3pm. I'm going to arrange with the county to take detail drawings and pictures of General Bissell's sash, sword belt, etc. Either on Friday or Sunday. Would I be able to borrow either one of yours digital cameras?

Specific points to practise are: Firing motions,  Breaking to the rear to form column to the right,   On the right form the line, piling arms, inspection (Don <g> ) and general nit picking of the manual.
