The Devil's in the Details

The artillery for the Gettysburg reenactment needs a command structure, she muses.

In theory and reality, it looks like it's up to me, as the 2nd Lieutenant of Moody's Battery (California artillery reenactors) to put one together for us. Because confusion seems to be reigning. There are four or five clubs involved in Moody's, the California artillery contingent, with everyone is gathered under one banner, and there are different stories about how the organization and structure is going, depending on who one talks to. Things like: if you are part of a cannon crew where the cannon owner is paying for the gas himself, are you still supposed to contribute to the $200 per person "grand haulage" fund to get the artillery back there? If you own a cannon you're taking, how do you coordinate on this gasoline thing? And what about meals? Can spouses contribute to the meal fund and eat with the artillery?

Just a few of the practical details that don't have answers yet. Nice ideas, but no application in real life, as yet. I've seen things like this fall apart in the more local stuff the clubs do. "I thought you were doing x..." Looks like I've got my work cut out for me, for the next month...
