Message Detail:

After Action report
Amhurst NY June 24-25
To all:

After a shaky start.....Cpl and pvt Byrne, civilian Wood had to be retrieved by commands wagon after their horse and buggy lost a wheel in a surprise attack by the federals 2 miles from the front lines. Pvt and Mrs. Garrett arrived safely the next morning without incident.

Day 1 battle(Skirmish-Bliss woods) took place with only about 17 federal infantry-we out numbered them 3 to 1. It was bloody hell! Battle took just 25 minutes, signals on both sides struggled with new venue, members, etc. A lot of missed signals, mostly due to Federals not talking directly to their command.

Day 2 battle went much smoother, pvt's Byrne and Garrett graciously agreed to galvanize to the federal side to balance the count.

York signal detachment and the first NY section did a great job on the second day..York Signals, thanked publicly in the post battle dress parade by Lt col T Place in keeping the battle flowing smoother and longer! Thanks to Cpl Byrne for assuming 1st Sgt role and pvt Corgel for great flagging!

Put Amherst down for next year, very much like Mumford, but on a smaller scale.

Thanks to Mandy for helping out and of Course to Mrs. Garrett for keeping us well fed!

Respectfully submitted,

Lt Bill
