4th Mo Co E, CSA/MSG Ash Grove, MO Mar 21, 2009


Ladies and Gentlemen:


By all accounts our spring muster was an outstanding success. The hard work put forth by all was both admired and appreciated.


The Good:

1.  The Park employees and the Friends of the Nathan Boone Homestead where more than friendly.

2.  The drill and how quickly everyone adjusted.

3.  The great attitudes of everyone.

4.  We had several ladies join us and it was nice to see them.


Then Bad:

1.  We had a wee bit of rain. 


The Ugly:

1.  My Hat. I think I need to reform it.


If you want to see your captain and a few others on TV.







Major Looney:


My compliments!


I am writing to inform you that we had a successful muster and recruitment at the Nathan Boone homestead. We had elements of the 1st Dismounted Mo, 3rd Mo, 5th Mo, 10th Mo in attendance with the 4th. Three new recruits were add to our role. This helps make up the loss of three last year.


Revelry was at 700 hours. After a hearty breakfast, we marched down to the house and went over safety. 1st Lt Scott George did a fine job.


Through out the day we practiced the manual of arms, stacking of arms, basic marching, some advance marching and skirmish drill. Since we had several members from different companies I was constantly switching out officers and 1st Sergeants to give each a chance to work their positions.


Despite rain and cold we worked hard and everyone was in good spirits.


We look forward to assembling with the entire battalion at Shoal Creek.
