Governor Shorter described those not in active service as doing only "drill, discipline and review"-
VI. Should you not deem it expedient at this time to put into service your entire command, you will order such portions, as are not placed in active service, out for drill, discipline and review as often as you may consider it necessary and proper.

The Creole Guards did more than drill, discipline and review-
You will meet at your Armory, this evening, 27th inst., at 7 1/2 o'clock, for Drill and Duty. It is expected that every member will be present.
By order of Capt. F. J. Barnard,
J. U. Barnard, O. S.
