Civil War Reenactors
MINUTES OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF
WIGGINS BATTERY, ARKANSAS HORSE ARTILLERY
February 11, 2012 at El Chico’s Restaurant, Mountain Home, Arkansas
Present were Commander Kevin Bodenhamer, Sgt. John Crain, Cpl. Jesse Crowley, Private David Artos, Wesley Nance. Gene Waters and Kevin Middleton came over from Harrison.
Minutes were read and approved from last years meeting. Treasurer’s report says we are in good shape. We have eight sponsors.
We have about 100 primers and 40 to 45 pounds of powder. Gene Waters has agreed to sell us powder and friction primers at the price he paid since he is retiring his gun. He was kind enough to donate an officer’s tent.
We elected officers and NCO’s same as last year. We set the calendar for the coming year. We have a work day on March 10 to get ready for Shiloh.
Your obedient servant,
1st Sgt. John A. Crain
John and Georgia will be going to Hackler Elementary School on March 16 to do a demonstration and hands on event for Ms. Photides 5th grade. They really enjoyed it the last time we went.
