Message Detail:
Mr. Anders,

At several progressive events there have been signal corps groups present. This past McDowell there was a signal detachment based on the side of a mountain communicating to a party atop a wooden signal tower constructed by the 6th La of the PSL.

Bob Denton's group also portrays the signal corps, as both federals and confederates. They also triple as infantry and artillery. I believe that they did a signal corps impression at McDowell 2001, but I could be wrong.

At Recon IV we used a telegraph system and planned on using smaller flags for communication. But the camp as of saturday night had stopped in the woods, so we had no visual communication with the other party.
