Message Detail:
This is not the most humorous event, but it was the most fun.

The real Miss Moore was from Baltimore. Remember Maryland was a border state and opinions about the war were varied. Miss Moore nursed the Confederate prisoners at Gettysburg. Some escaped. They were caught a short time later with civilian clothes and Yankee money. As the escaped prisoners were from Baltimore, it was rumored that the Baltimore Christian Commission women had sneaked the clothes and money to them. The Yankee officers investigated this incident. Miss Moore was cleared, but six ladies were send back to Baltimore and warned not to leave the city borders.

In last week's reenactment, the CC tent was close to the prison. So Miss Moore hid some pistols and knives. The prisoners grabbed the weapons, but were caught almost immediately. Of couses, Miss Moore did not know a thing about the hidden items. :-)

JR, Your scenerio also sounds like fun.
