On Saturday morning we will assemble Camp Charity (Bardstown Village) to be inspected by a surgeon, enlist, and be given rations and pay. Instruction in the manual of arms will be given along with some firing demonstrations. Spectators are encouraged to come out and cheer on the troops, observe and ask questions. We will also be working with local Boy Scout troops, helping fulfill requirements for a merit badge on US and local history.
