    Hi All, this is Mad Dog, bruvver of the Loof from the exiles and I am fighting at Gettysburg Pa on the weekend of 4th 5th 6th of July at the 145th anniversary of that momentus occasion. If anyone else is around there please come and look us up. we are registered as the 1st louisiana infantry, 11 Virginia brigade, Longstreets corps and will be flying a Union Jack. I reckon a good old chinwag about the superwhites will make a nice change from blabbing on about states rights - see you on the field.

    Welcome Bigoldreb. Went to Gettysburg in the early 90's and if your a history fan it's hollowed ground, enjoy the weekend. Just out of curiousity, could you share how your trip came about?

    I second Petty's comment. . . that is cool. Cant believe a Brit wants to come all the way to Gettysburg to reinact the ACW. The website said 50,00 British citizens fought in it; is that meant to be 5,000 or 50,000? I enjoyed reading the history on your site, thanks.

    Havent been to Gettysburg in a while but the Map Room used to be the best part, IMHO. Wish I could be there to see it but my in-laws live a few miles away so I avoid the area if at all possible. Have a great time; hopefully it wont be too hot.
