Winter Quarters - Another successful year is in the books. With Droop Mountain now completed, Mess No. 1 has concluded the 2018 year. As a Mess, we attended four events in 2018 - Sailors Creek, Prelude to Gettysburg, Stones River and Droop Mountain. Our first event in 2019 will be The Assault on Fort Blakeley and we will end the year with our own event, Missionary Ridge. More details to come on the rest of the event schedule. We will hold a mess meeting over the winter to discuss. Have a great "off-season" everyone and we will see you in 2019!
