Go to my web site: rebelyell1.com there is a place there to email me. I will then forward to you a person who does MD war stuff. If fact they just got an am-ba-lance, ( we rebels are use to such fancy words ) and were you friend is going to live will depend on which re-enactment unit he joins. The Texas Rifles are in Dallas/Houston, the 9th Texas in Ft. Worth, the 1st U.S. Reg. Infantry in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, 19th Texas in Longview, 7th Texas Waco, 6th Texas co.k San Antonio, 6th Texas co. G Austin, 6th Texas Cav. dismounted Kelleen, Terry's Texas Rangers Bee Cave, Texas. So that will give you some idea. The people that I can put you in touch with will be able to explain to you anything you will need to know.
