Connecticut Line CTSSAR: REPORT – 230th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of Norwal

Dear Compatriots of the Connecticut Line CTSSAR,

Just returned from the 230th Anniversary Commemoration of the Battle of
Norwalk Weekend in Norwalk, Connecticut.

It was a great weekend, 2 beautiful days, it was just Saturday night where
we had strong winds and rain, but we survived, and went home Dry!!!

My compliments to the members of the Line. We looked good on the field in
both Saturdays “Burning of Norwalk” scenario and in Sundays “Battle of the
Rocks” scenario. We received many compliments from the Continental Field
Commander. HUZZAH!!! Great opportunity to burn a lot of powder on the field
fighting British regulars. Good Show!!! I would like to thank the following
members for attending the entire weekend:

Michael Chuckta
Dan Dudley
Lee Gerlander
Todd Gerlander
Randy Gerlander
Bob Lasprogato
Russell Wirtalla

We have ONE more encampment this year, Our “Grand Encampment” on Saturday, 
September 12 – Sunday, September 13, 2009 at the Gov. Trumbull
House/Wadsworth Stable in Lebanon, CT. Since Fort #4 is cancelled, I expect
more members to be in Lebanon. I will be posting more details in the weeks
ahead.

Put your faith in God and keep your powder dry,

Todd L. Gerlander
Colonel Commanding
