150th Battle of Tunnel Hill
Some may have thought it was smaller than they expected. It was a very pleasing turn out. While we all like to see big events, this year I deliberately did NOT promote our event so that many would concentrate on the Battle of Atlanta (and it appears to have been a wonderful event... I unfortunately had to work. Thanks Colonel Lay for watching out for our [people). I had anticipated about the numbers we had and was pleased by the QUALITY of the troops... Yall were magnificent, I got to play on Jeff Davis' Howitzer for awhile Saturday before getting a stomach virus that sort of took the wind out of my sails. The Ball was great, The 5th Alabama did a wonderful job. I cannot tell you all how grateful Sandy and I are by your kindnesses and friendship to Miss Marta Vazquez of Coruna Spain who came to be a part of the Event and visit us for a couple weeks! In short the Battle was great, we had good artillery turn out and the finest of the fine Reenactors this year. A Big Thank you to General (Private ) Earl Zeckman and the 125th Ohio who came despite their events demands for this past weekend... 20 years of support! We supported Earl Federal and proudly so at Atlanta.... Ken

30Lb. Parrot Cannon.
As one of our major projects the Guns of Fort Negley have
worked hard to acquire two Parrot cannons that will be brought
to Fort Negley after we have new carriages built for them. The
cannons will then look similar to the one pictured above. These
cannons are being provided to us through the Shiloh National
