Subject: A Great Loss...

Message Detail:
Friends, and fellow reenactors,

Not all may be aware of this, and of those that are, there are some that may not know of whom I speak, but the CW reenactment community especially, and everyone in general has suffered a great loss.

Gen. Chuck Hillsman, commander of Longstreet's Corps, has passed away recently. Please take a moment and think of his wife and family.

Longstreet's Corps lost its commander, but we have all lost a friend. Chuck did more for reenacting, and cared more about the war and about historic preservation, than anyone I have ever known or heard of.

A tragic loss to many, and a great loss to us all.

Rest in peace, Gen. You've earned it! *Salute*

JR
