I was in the Army (Ft. Knox) with a young man who's last name was "Spotted Tail" - I wonder ...

Most likely! a few years ago I met a descendant of American Horse (as in Slim Buttes) at a wresteling meet.

I just corresponded with Sgt. John and he said he wouldn't likely be able to attend - he would need to bring his daughter

I doubt there'd be many babysitter shortages ::)

My thoughts exactly!

He'd probably have us olde phartz lining up for a chance to watch out for her!  Her Daddy is probably still young enough that he doesn't realize what a little Granddaughter-type/size person can do to/for a bunch of Old So-jers, Jy-rines, Swabbies Air-heads and other assorted riff-raff, including silly-vilians!  It's pure pleasure!  Heck, he might even have fellers trying to pay HIM for the privilege of watchin' her!  ;)

I am really looking foward this muster. I don't have any period military uniforms to wear so I guess I will dress as a civilian. I'm just an Ol' fat cop, I don't imagine anyone stocks any 5 or 6x military uniforms.  I do have a replica 36 cal revolver and a replica Saber.
I'll be dressed as a civilian scout. I doubt I'll have the money fer a uniform by that time.

Why ... the mere presence of all those explosives and weapons will rot the poor dog's brain, turn him into a criminal, and he'll probably begin terrorist activities to help overthrow the Government.  Or at least the Liberal movement.  Next thing ya know, he'll morph into a meld of Sarah Brady, Ted Kennedy and Billary Clinton! (AFTER his mind has been scrubbed, of course!)

I am going to assume we should plan on bringing our own bedding/blankets?

Now, while I fear that "The Quilt King" will be horrified and thus relegate me to a diet of biscuit and water as punishment, would there be any massive objection on Period Correctness grounds if I use a modern sleeping bag (.... covered with a suitable woolen blanket, of course ....) rather than loose sheets and such?

I can't keep sheets and blankets tucked in properly and covering me in my bed at home, let alone while "camping" ....  :-\

Hey!!!

I finally did it, got around to getting myself a Trapdoor Carbine.  Found a Pedersoli that was fired 5 times and it was going for $200 less than cost and SASS Discount on a Brand New on from EMF.  So, I will be in style at the GAF National......with that and my USFA Government Inspectors (Ainsworth) Model.... :D

Cool! I'm getting the standard sights installed on my Pedersoli. If it's done by then I'll use it if not I'll use one of my originals. Sure hope you can make it.
