Gentlemen of 3rd
It has been a very warm, humid, and stormy
summer so far here in Central Virginia. I know it has been very lax as far
as events and I can tell you that the Fall will be the same way. I hope as a
Regiment we can put forth a good effort to put out good numbers at
Montpelier. Keep in mind due to the Regiment wanting to give Cedar Creek a
break this year, we will be having our annual Regimental Meeting at
We will be discussing some issues at this
meeting. I will be sure to postthe issues in another e-mail so everyone can
see them. We will havea lot of new and interesting things going on at
Montpelier this year. I am very excited about the event and all that is on
the schedule.hope you will all make an effort to attend in good numbers.
I know all too well that
the latest developments concerning the Battle Flag and the attacks on our
Heritage have been upsetting. Know that my own ancestors fought and shed
blood following that same Battle Flag. We need to stick together during
these times and stay strong. Don’t worry about reenacting or events just
yet. When it is time to worry I, or your company commanders will let you
know. I ask that you please be smart and do not believe every story and
rumor you may hear. I believe you are all very smart people and I know yall
know better than to play into some of the lies being told. Our “enemies”
will tell you anything to get you angry. Be smarter than them.
I think worst of all is hearing the negative comments being made concerning
our flag and heritage by people we once knew and trusted. It’s painful to
see former members of 3rd
Regiment itself turn their backs on us and our flag. The day of reckoning
Smaller events and other activities will be
discussed later. IF you know of any events or would like to see the Regiment
