Subject: Thoughts concerning Gettysburg 2006

Message Detail:
On the Sunday event I only saw one Black Signal Flag on the field on Pickett's Charge engagement. And I couldn't see any other signal flags on the field. Did I miss something.

I estimate atleast 150 infantry on either side. Am I
correct for this assumption? I did see Tom McDonald of Longstreet's Signal Detachment but I believe he was toting a Musket instead of a Signal Flag.

Because of such small numbers on either side I guess the actions were co-ordinated by radios instead of Signal Flags.

I'm sure I missed alot because I wasn't there all weekend.Can anyone tell us who the CSO's were, and which detachments were present?

Thanks Doug
