March: General News and Notes

Gentlemen, thanks for checking out this month's Newsletter.

I am pleased to report that our muster for January was 88%. This is above our average of 80% since December of 2021. Keep up the excellent work. The Vicksburg Challenge begins today and will continue through the summer. More Challenges will begin later this year. If you haven't yet seen our YouTube Channel, I highly recommend checking it out. I have enjoyed watching the videos more than most of the shows on TV these days. Visit the Club's YouTube channel by clicking here.

Last month's poll question asked which western state you would like to visit to view Civil War related sites and battlefields. Louisiana was the most popular answer. I am more inclined to say Missouri as I feel there would be more to see overall, but I am in the minority on this one. When asked about which general banished to the west was the most deserving of a second chance in the east, your answers were more varied. Kirby Smith and Richard Taylor were the two most popular answers. John Magruder got a few votes as well. Magruder received my vote as his performance in the Seven Days Campaign, while poor, was no poorer than many others.
