First of all, let me say "Thanks" to everyone from the Carolina, Deep South and other Regions that attended the Denhamville, GA Skirmish this past weekend! We of the 24th Georgia were the Host Team.
Denhamville was burned down in November of 1864 by the N-SSA's own 149th New York during Sherman's Tour of Georgia-so it is now a "Ghost Town," The only structure that remains standing is an indutrial brick chimney that was constructed in 1848 and the chimney for the Tannery located in the town.
In keeping with the unique Southern Venue of the Denhamville Skirmish-we don't give away Medals to Individual and Team Competition Winners, but we give away "Secession Badges!" Blue or Gold for 1st Place, Red for 2nd Place and White for 3rd Place.
We presently have ONE unique venue for N-SSA Skirmishes: Our Mortar Range is an "Indirect Fire" range, so a Mortar Team must have an "Observer."
This weekend I also got a commitment from a contractor to build some berms AND THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY we can also set up a SEPARATE RANGE of 150-200 Yards for "Long Range" Skirmish events that would allow Skirmishers to use their Rifles and Rifle-Muskets OR their Whitworth and Volunteer Rifles.
As our next Skirmish will be held next year this time-I need to know IF THERE IS ENOUGH INTEREST in a Long Range Individual Matches for us to go ahead and build/set up such a range.
So, Please let me know IF you would consider coming to the 2014 Denhanville Skirmish IF we build a 150-200 Yard Range and are willing to enter the "Denhamville Long Range Match!"
The Mayor of Denhamville
