Subject: Need info on Confederate Signal Corps

Message Detail:


Hi,

I'm John Schultz. Currently with the First Texas - company L. I'm fully outfitted (early/mid war uniform - RD2 jacket) have tents, etc.... (pic of me above) My kids (girl: 11 & boy 9 come with me to events) CLICK HERE for pic of them

Anyways - I'm Also part of Gen. A.P. Hill's staff as his "Telegrapher".

I'm looking to get info on any CONFEDERATE SIGNAL CORPS units in Eastern virginia. (Norfolk to Richmond).

Would like to ask questions as well

1. Telegraphy and the Confederate Army. How was it used - how often, etc....

2. Was there a Confederate Signal Corps uniform patch for enlisted? (if so -where was it worn and where can i get one)

3. I have a Circa 1890 Bunnell sounder and key that I've been using - it has only small differences from the circa 1860's types - is what I have good?


Again - looking for info - looking for a group - looking to PARTICIPATE!
