Masonic ceremony at Gettysburg

As in past years we, the Masons of Birney's Division, are holding a gathering the Saturday morning November 17th on Steinweir Avenue at the "Friend to Friend" monument at 10:30 AM.

We are inviting all Masonic and non Masonic reenactors that are interested in this gathering and speech. Please pass this notice on to all of your Masonic reenactor friends. The talk is worth your while to attend.

The central theme for the speech will be to honor those who fought at Gettysburg, veterans throughout all times, their family, those who serve today, as well as those who cared for the wounded. The speech will also honor those who were Masons.

Ohio Leadership Conference registration closing this week

October 27, 2012
10 am to 5 pm
Ohio Village, Columbus Ohio

Just a reminder that registration is closing on for the Ohio Civil War Reenactor Leadership Conference on October 15th. We only have a few people attending from Birney's Division and I would like to have your voice there. I don't want just myself and Captain Baltzer as the only voices from Birney's. We need your feedback and ideas to make our activities in Ohio the best they can be!

The conference is open to all Civil War reenactors of any rank and branch (Union, Confederate or civilian), however I highly encourage all of our Battalion company officers attend (even those of you in PA). A registration fee of $10.00 will cover food. Go to to print the registration form and for more information or email me at to get a form.

Your Servant,
Christopher L. Smith, Colonel
Birney's Division, 2d Battlion
