Annual Gettysburg Battlefield Tour

Once again we will be hosting a Battlefield Tour on Friday November 16 th starting at 1:00 pm meeting at the old Guide Station located just off Chambersburg Pike (Rt. 30 Wes t leaving town) at Stones Ave. right across the road from Reynolds's Equestrian/Buford Statues. Please try to arrive a little early so we can start the tour close to 1:00.

As in years past Rich Kohr has agreed to lend his expertise and knowledge for our benefit; this year's topic will be an overall look at the Confederate Attack of the First Army Corps. Not sure how much area we will be covering but be prepared to car pool in case we need to go distances. Rich has told me that since the NPS has acquired the Gettysburg Golf Course we will be touring in areas where folks were not permitted before as tour groups.

Any of you who have attended in the past know full well that Rich always gives an extremely interesting and educational tour mixed in with a bunch of laughs along the way. It always amazes me how many in depth and detailed stories Rich always seems to share. If you haven't attended in the past I encourage all comers to make the tour. I know it might be quite a long walk so dress according to the weather and have good (warm) walking shoes; and you might want to bring along something to drink and snack on since we will be out for quite a while; this is not your typical Battlefield Guide tour, our tours always last longer.

Of course since Rich basically volunteers his time for us it's only fitting that we �pass the hat� again this year as a thank you to Rich for reserving his afternoon for us. So please come prepared to drop a few bucks in the hat; trust me it's a REAL BARGAIN.

Thanks and I hope to see a great turnout,

Gents,
At this weekend's reenactment I will be bringing items for sale. They are two Civil War revolvers, one a repro and one original. The repro is real nice and comes with a holster. It is a repro Remington model 1858 cap and ball revolver. All bluing intact and fully functional. The other is an original Remington model 1858 that was manufactured in 1864. This was confirmed from the serial number on the barrel. Also, there is the original military cartouche on the handle. This firearm is in excellent shape and can still be fired. The barrel is pristine. I hope I can sell both! Asking $200.00 for the repro and $600 for the original. Both very reasonable prices but I will negotiate for the sales. See you at Neshaminy.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

At the last Annual meeting of the Mifflin Guard Executive Committee, a sub-committee, chaired by Mike Harris, was tasked with providing recommendations as to how we could make the nomination and voting for Mifflin Guard field and staff, etc. more equitable for those units who are basically prevented from attending the meetings because of the extreme distance they would need to travel. The committee presented recommendations at a meeting at Neshaminy this past Spring and the Guidelines presented were accepted by those units attending that event. The Guidelines have been published previously but I would suggest you review them now.

In conjunction with the Guidelines, nominations were accepted through the Remembrance Day weekend, then closed. The ballot form is now on the site. Each of the 3 unit representatives to the Mifflin Guard should download a copy of the form, exercise their right to vote for their battalion officers and staff, and then send the completed form to Joe Coleman for collection. The representative does not have to put his or her name on the ballot must MUST put their unit name where indicated. You can click here to view the Ballot

Mifflin Guard at Remembrance Day

Marchers are to be on hand by 12:00 noon on Saturday the 20th, Nov. for the Mifflin Guard parade formation as we will form companies and conduct a dress parade.

Guidelines are simple, no slouch hats for enlistedmen, no backpacks, no gaitors and no ammunition. Officers as well as enlistedmen are to polish your brass!

Companies will be formed in as equal numbers as possible. Each unit fielding a flag for the colors company is to provide an escort of one man under arms. Civilians will march behind the battalion.

We will proceed to the Meade Monument for our ceremony at the end of the parade route and be dismissed from there at the conclusion of the ceremony. See you in the field!

Members & Friends,

Gettysburg Battlefield tour Friday November 19 th

For those of you who plan to attend our annual battlefield tour we will be starting the tour with Rich Kohr at the Parking Lot behind the Wax Museum (Steinwehr Ave.) at 1:00 pm .  From there we can try to carpool to reduce vehicles then proceed to the battlefield.  Our tour this year sounds very interesting(as always); we will be looking at the Texas Brigade assault on Devil's Den. Rich tells me that he has some incredible information and we'll see some places not too many folks know about, I am very excited to hear what he has to share.  Please try to arrive at the Wax Museum Parking Lot a little earlier so we can start the tour as close to 1:00 pm as possible.  Like all of the other years I would like to remind all of you that Rich does these tours as a friend and never sets a price; we will be “passing the hat” near the end of the tour to thank him for giving up his time and especially for sharing his incredible knowledge.  So come prepared to chip in a few dollars and if you come and have to leave early also try to chip in before you leave.

 

Looking forward to a great turnout and an awesome tour.

As many of you know, a committee was appointed at our last annual meeting, to recommend a nomination and election process for our annual election of the field & staff officrs and NCOs as well any administrative positions. These new processes are a result of the Guard's efforts to give each unit within the Guard an opportunity to nominate and elect our staff even if you are unable to actually attend the meeting. We realize that our membership has grown and it is no longer a local organization where all the member units have an easy trip to the site of the meeting. Thanks to the efforts of the committee consisting of Mike Harris, Chairman, Joe Coleman and Rich Adams, we present the revised provisions for the Mifflin Guard Staff, etc. Also, there are links to our current By-Laws and Membership Guidelines. Please follow the appropriate links below. An appropriate form for use in the nomination and election process will be uploaded to this site in the very near future.

Folks,

Included in this communication is a poster of a Civil War Benefit Concert for a gentlemen and his family who are members of the 12 th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry who have recently lost everything, including their 3 pets, in a devastating fire. The concert is to be held with hopes to get them back on their feet. The soldier in the 12 th , Rob Heulings, has given much to local communities as far as living history talks to school children and much for the preservation of our Civil War history.

If you think you might enjoy a few hours of period music on a Sunday afternoon in April, performed by 3 different period musical groups, please come! You may contact the number or email on the attached poster for reservations or just show up.

Thanks for your time,

Rich Mendoza

Comrades,

You may have read about this on the Mifflin Guard Yahoo website. If not I am reporting about a tragedy that befell one of our members from the 12th New Jersey. Rob Heulings and his wife Lynne lost everything they owned in a devastating house fire while they were at work. There was nothing salvageable.

Many of the fellows in the 12th NJ went to Rob & Lynne's immediate aid and are continuing to help them monetarily so they could continue their lives as best they could. The Hueling's are good people of modest means. Rob is very interested in promoting civil war history and has done many volunteer school programs in southern NJ.

We ask if it is in your ability to help that you may send help in the form of visa check cards available at most any store or bank. Please send your contributions to:

 Rob Heulings PO Box 1394 Millville NJ 08332. 

We of the 12th NJ and for the Heuling's thank you very much for any help. These first days after the fire are critical to help provide them with the means to get back on their feet. They are presently in a hotel paid for by the red cross while waiting their insurance to kick in and place a trailer on their propoerty as they begin the rebuilding process.

The 12th NJ are planning a benefit concert by the Libby Prison Minstrels and Camp Town Shakers hopefully on March 27th here in South Jersey. The 12th NJ is holding a benefit social on May 15th in Pennsauken.

Regards, Andy Siganuk

Gentlemen!

The Battle of Bentonville, The South's last chance to stop Sherman in his tracks, is held once every five years, and 2010 is the year.

This event, _Bentonville Reenactment_ ( http://www.bentonvi lle145.com/ ) , will be held on March 20-21. The 12th NJ is chartering a bus that will be open to all Mifflin Guard members.

The DETAILS:

The bus will leave the South Jersey area on Thursday night, the 18th, well after working hours. This way, you will only need to take off Friday.

We will arrive Friday morning which will allow you plenty of time to set up camp and explore the area. In addition, the 12th will have a truck down there to move everyone's gear from the lot to the camp (about 200 yds.)

We will leave right after the final battle on Sunday ( starts at 1:30 PM) and will be home about midnight. You could make work Monday if you really wanted to.

The 12th NJ Commissary will be there, supplying Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner and Sunday breakfast at nominal cost.

If 30 men sign up for the trip, the cost is $94.00 per person. If more sign up, the cost comes down. The bus is a 55 seater, with a bathroom and a DVD system.

Right now, I just need to know who is interested in going on the bus, so hit the 'reply' button and reserve your seat now. You can cancel out anytime up until three weeks before the trip.

ALL ATTENTION MIFFLIN GUARD

REMEMBRANCE DAY PARADE

Please be on hand behind the old high school at noon on Saturday. We will be forming companies then. Plan accordingly. We don't want to have to realign at the last minute. Dress parade and ceremony prior to the parade will be at 12:15.

Troops are requested to bring a pair of white gloves. Enlisted men and nco's are to wear caps or kepis, no slouch hats! No gaitors or backpacks. Polish your brass! Greatcoats are acceptable if weather is too cold. Leave ammunition at home.

As usual, colors will be massed at our center company. If your unit is carrying colors you must provide a one man escort for the rear rank of the color company. A first and second sergeant are needed for the color company. 

We will march the parade route and then proceed to the Meade Monument to honor our ancestors and fallen members of the Mifflin Guard. Please contact Scott Washburn to list a recently lost member.

Annual Gettysburg Battlefield Tour

Once again we will be hosting a Battlefield Tour on Friday November 20 th meeting at 1:00 pm at the old Guide Station located just off Chambersburg Pike (Rt. 30 Wes t leaving town) at Stones Ave. right across the road from Reynolds's Equestrian/Buford Statues. Please try to arrive a little early so we can start the tour close to 1:00.

As in years past Rich Kohr has agreed to lend his expertise and knowledge for our benefit; this year's topic will be an overall look at the retreat of the First Army Corps that actually went through the streets of town on its way toward Cemetery Ridge. We have a couple options this year as far as how we will travel along the tour route. One option (which I think will work best) would be to place a few vehicles near the Dobbins House and then walk the tour from Seminary Ridge into town to an area near Cemetery Ridge. This way when we complete the tour we'll have a few vehicles there to shuttle drivers back to the starting point. The other option would be carpooling along the route; this could work but it does pose a problem of where to park along the way especially when we get into town. As you all know that weekend can be pretty crowded.

Any of you who have attended in the past know full well that Rich always gives an extremely interesting and educational tour mixed in with a bunch of laughs along the way. It always amazes me how many in depth and detailed stories Rich always seems to share. If you haven't attended in the past I encourage all comers to make the tour. I know it might be quite a long walk so dress according to the weather and have good (warm) walking shoes; and you might want to bring along something to drink and snack on since we will be out for quite a while; this is not your typical Battlefield Guide tour, our tours always last longer.

Of course since Rich basically volunteers his time for us it's only fitting that we “pass the hat” again this year as a thank you to Rich for reserving his afternoon for us. So please come prepared to drop a few bucks in the hat; trust me it's a REAL BARGAIN.

Thanks and I hope to see a great turnout,

Annual Gettysburg Battlefield Tour
Once again we will be hosting a Battlefield Tour on Friday November 21 st starting at 1:00 pm meeting at the old Guide Station located just off Chambersburg Pike (Rt. 30 Wes t leaving town) at Stones Ave. right across the road from Reynolds's Equestrian Statue. Please try to arrive earlier so we can start the tour at 1:00.
As in years past Rich Kohr has agreed to lend his expertise and knowledge for our benefit; this year's topic will be an overall look at the actions of the First Army Corps. Any of you who have attended in the past know full well that Rich always gives an extremely interesting and educational tour mixed in with a bunch of laughs along the way. It always amazes me how many in depth and detailed stories Rich always seems to share. If you haven't attended in the past I encourage all comers to make the tour. I'm not positive how much of the battlefield we will be covering so be prepared to car pool if necessary. Dress according to the weather; and you might want to bring along something to drink and snack on since we will be out for quite a while; this is not your typical Battlefield Guide tour, our tours always last longer.
Of course since Rich basically volunteers his time for us it's only fitting that we “pass the hat” again this year as a thank you to Rich for reserving his afternoon for us. So please come prepared to drop a few bucks in the hat; trust me it's a REAL BARGAIN.
Thanks and I hope to see a great turnout,

I lost two valuable coins at Cedar Creek, an 1863 Indian Head Penny and an 1860 half-dollar with a hole in the top.  They were in a small plaid ration bag that I probably dropped somewhere.  I know that there is only a small probability that someone will find and report them, but if they do, please let me know.  A good friend gave them to me, and he will be disappointed if I can't find them.  Can you please post this on the Mfflin Guard website? Thank you.

We have added a new sutler to the sutler page at the request of Cliff Speer from the 12th New Jersey. Cliff state, "I myself have purchased a Federal Frock coat and a pair of NCO trousers and the quality is first-rate. They do the work for the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA.  If you would like their website it's: www.provisionalsupply.com . Ken Friedman is the fellow I have spoken to in the past and he is a very nice fellow. I am not getting any kind of stipend for doing this.  I just want the MG and any other reenacting orginization to benefit from them as I have. They pride themselves in manufacturing museum grade wares and uniforms for less than sutler row prices.

Attention all Mifflin Guard members friends and family; the 150 th PV Companies C & F; will be hosting our annual battlefield tour with Rich Kohr (Licensed Battlefield Guide) on Friday November 16 th the day before Remembrance Day.  This year ' s proposed tour will be rather interesting; we will be touring the route of the historic Electric Trolley Line that covered many key locations on the battlefield.  Rich has presented this tour to a few different groups including a Sons of Union Veterans group all of which enjoyed the tour very much. The tour will start on Cemetery Ridge; we will meet at the Visitors Center as always then proceed to locations near there including areas near the National Cemetery and down towards Pickett's Charge area.  From there the tour will have us driving to the Wheatfield area and covering the areas near there which will include Devils Den and Little Round Top.  Rich mentioned that he has several photos of the old trolley and lots of info as usual; he also mentioned that the addition of the trolley there contributed the establishment of the Nation al Park.   Our tours with Rich in the past several years have been awesome; I promise you won ' t be disappointed .

So; if anyone plans to attend the Friday tour here is what you need to know.

We will gather at the Visito r s Center on Tanneytown Road at around 12:30 pm we should try to start the tour promptly at 1:00 pm.  Make sure you wear comfortable shoes because as you can see we will be walking quite a bit; and of course dress according to the weather.   Bring something a drink or a snack if needed; because we will be out there for a few hours.

We will be “ passing the hat ” to collect as much money as we can to give to Rich; we do this every year and it ' s not asking a lot to drop a few bucks (as much as you can) to thank Rich for his time and expertise.  If you were to hire Rich as a Licensed Battlefield Guide it would cost you about $40.00 for a couple hours.  We will be getting him for a lot longer time and will get more detailed info than most tours ever get .  So ; please pl a n to be as generous as you can afford , Rich has agreed to do these tour s for us mainly out of friendship and support of folk who really appreciate history.

Any questions please contact Joe Conroy at –

The Mifflin Guard will hold a brief general membership meeting at Neshaminy. This will not take too long. We have a couple of updates and need to vote on probationary units who are patiently waiting to become full members. We have two units petitioning to join the Mifflin Guard as well. We did not get a chance to meet as School of Soldier was cancelled.


February 27 , 2007

The School of the Soldier/Battalion is cancelled for this weekend. Unfortunately, there were insufficient numbers registered to effectively do any battalion drill. Since most of the Mifflin Guard units hold their own School of the Soldier and School of the Company, it seemed unnecessary to have our members travel to Wilkes-Barre if we could not have a decent School of the Battalion. Thank you for those who did respond and were intending to attend the School. The general membership meeting usually held during our MG School of the Soldier will take place at Neshaminy this year. The exact day and time are yet to be determined. The meeting will be short but we need to vote our comrades from the 28th MASS and the 13th PA Reserves to full membership. A new unit seeking probationary status, the 7th West Virginia will also be introduced.


February 22 , 2007

Folks, Scott Washburn was recently informed by Tom Holbrook that the Gettysburg NPS will be celebrating the anniversary of the battle on the weekend of July 7th & 8th. Hope this won't pose a problem as they have requested us for that weekend. This would change from the proposed date of June 30th/July 1st. It is a great honor that we are requested to be part of this historic and monumental location's presentation. There will be a program with Scott Hartwig this year as well which we will be part of. Please send me your unit's availability. Regards, Andy Siganuk 

February 22 , 2007

Friends, The 12th NJ will drill at Ft. Mott, just below Pennsville, NJ on Saturday, March 24th. This is a great park and part of the three fort system strung across the Delaware between Ft. Delaware. We would be pleased to have your unit or any members that would like to join us this day. The 12th NJ will commence drill at 9:30 AM. Come out and shake the dust off and tour the facility! If interested contact me at asiganuk@comcast.net


February 11 , 2007

Hello All, I have the honor of receiving a letter of intent to join the Mifflin Guard and roster of the 7th West Virginia. They have already received a number of endorsements from existing members. I ask you to give your endorsement to probationary status  for the 7th at School of Soldier as we didn't get a chance to discuss this matter at the Executive Meeting. Proper documentation for membership has been received and will be available for your review.

. I am asking that we move to give them probationary status at School of the Soldier. We have done this in the past. This is a recent event as we had received word of the 7th WV's desire to join the Mifflin Guard after the executive meeting.

Regards, Andy Siganuk

Uniforms Needed for Young Musicians
BSA Troop 53 and the BSA Explorer Post 1863 Fife and Drum Corps are an affiliation with the 1st PA Reserves. You may have noticed them on Remembrance Day or at Bull Run last summer. They are soliciting permanent donations of used uniforms and equipment. They are also looking into purchasing new uniforms as scarce funds permit but their main focus has naturally been the instruments for the musicians. They will gratefully accept any donation of used uniforms items--bummers; sack coats or infantry frock; belt with "US" buckle, sky blue pants; suspenders; brogans, and items such as canteens and haversacks. Items needed are for boys ranging from 12-16 years of age and any outgrown uniform part donations are greatly appreciated. If the price is "right", the Corps would also consider purchasing used uniform parts or equipment.

If interested in learning more, or in making a donation, contact Mike Cassidy at [ mailto:newrycassidy@comcast.net ]newrycassidy@comcast.net of phone h.717-426-3941 or at work 717-787-3085. Donated uniform parts and equipment can also be brought to any Mifflin Guard event.
Thank you.
