Subject: Rules of Engagement

Those who have have spent time reading as well as physically preparing for this event are well aware that conditions were rough for military and civilian alike at this time and place during the war.

Civilians participating in this event follow similar standards to the military in first person and material culture requirements. Additionally, most civilian participants will have been on site since the previous Sunday, living and working in the period as best we can.

While we attempt to replicate as much of that life as possible, consideration must be given to the consequences of actions.

Thus, Fred Baker and I have settled on the following informational notices and rules of engagement for interaction between civilians and military.

(1) Women who appear pregnant ARE pregnant.

(2) Men who appear injured or infirm ARE injured.

(3) Children must be NOT be separated from their adult guardians.

(4) Civilians encountered on the trail may be detained and searched within the limits of NORMAL period deportment. Food items may be permanently confiscated. Any other items must be returned prior to the close of the event.

(5) No Civilian shall be physically restrained in a manner that would prevent them from reaching necessary medication. There are several participants with
medical conditions which may require their instant access to abuterol inhalers, EPI pens, heart medication, or other quick acting medication.

(6) No Civilian shall be detained without adequate provision for water, food, blanket, or access to the sinks or necessary medication.

(7) Civilian homes may be searched only under the command and direction of the highest ranking military officer for the relevant side.

(8) Any physical altercations between military participants and civilian participants must have been pre-arranged between the two parties.

The area through which both armies are traveling is a Howling Wilderness. This is not the rich country of the nearby Cane River, the land is sparsely settled, and will barely support the poor farmers living on it. We know little of politics and care even less. We have little to sell, or to confiscate, and hope that the war will pass us by.

But it won't.
