Drill Weekend AAR

I will keep this short and brief,

I would like to thank all members of the 105th Pa and 5th Va that attended the spring muster drill in Perryopolis. We had the entire battlefield at our disposal and we took advantage. Despite the rain on Fri, the field was in good condition for morning drill on Sat. The events of Sat afternoon consisted both forces skirmishing until each side lacked the energy to continue. So long story short... it was a good long battle. There was then another drill later in the evening. The events of sat night were night patrols from both forces all over the battlefield which erupted into a long night skirmish. As always it was a good time to get together, put the wool on, burn some powder and enjoy the weekend with our Confederate Brothers in Arms. Again I would like to thank all of those who attended.

I would also like to welcome Nick Gruse to the ranks of the 105th. Nick joined us in Perry for the muster and plane to fall in with us at New Market
