Fort Sill Half Section Demonstration , and other stuff in SASS Wire Saloon Posted Tuesday at 01:04 PM · Edited Tuesday at 01:05 PM by Utah Bob #35998 3 hours ago, Linn Keller, SASS 27332, BOLD 103 said: Ohio has the biggest Civil War re-enactor and collector's show in the nation. It's held in Mansfield at the fairgrounds (cancelled this year of course, along with everything else) I would give my eye teeth to have been there three years ago (I think it was three) A Florida artillery regiment came up -- they parked their tractor-trailers and a minor fleet of pickup trucks in the far end of the property to get set up. A whistle, a yell, a gunshot, a bugle: here they came at a dead flat out gallop, hooves a-thunder and sabers bright in the morning sunlight, charging at the top of their lungs for the infield: they brought the teams around, gun carriages and limbers slid into position, one-two-three side-by-side, they unhitched livestock and limbers, the guns had been power slid into position in a neat row: powder monkeys at a dead run, charges run home, a raised saber, a leather-lunged FIRE! and BANG BANG BANG right down the row! They had to put in an awful lot of practice to make it look that good! At the Battle of Olustee in Florida back in the 80s there was a horse drawn artillery unit from Ohio that used to attend almost every year. They were Amazing!
