School of the Soldier 2024

School of the Soldier
Heckler Plantation, Harleysville, PA
April 6, 2024

The Battle Line

As we kicked off our 2024 season we had an excellent opportunity to train and integrate more than 6 new members into our ranks. We held our very first “School of the Soldier“ of the 2024 year at a park in Harleysville, Pa in cooperation with our comrades in the 71st Pa Regiment under Captain Randy Goode.

Passing the Formation
Training the Recruits

With a number of new recruits we needed to have a group of experienced soldiers help teach them the manual of arms… marching procedure .. and use of the musket. We estimated that would need 4 – 6 of our members beyond the regular Military Board members to make this happen. The call for volunteers went out to the membership. A fine turnout trained all who attended.
