Hey Dixie Girl,  Thanks for the welcome . Whats up? Getting ready this weekend for the annual Brooksville raid gathering in Brooksville Florida. Its the largest gathering in the state of Florida , usually drawing 3000+ participants  including artllery and cavalry, not bad for Florida a Civil War backwater compared to Virginia. Ironically , the original federal raid that the occasion commemorates consisted only of apprx 400 Union raiders in 1864. The only drawback with this weekend we are expecting colder than usual weather lows in the thirties rather than the usual sixties. brrrrrrrr.        ref: http://www.brooksville raid .com
