    Large Scale Community Event

    The community would like to announce that there will be a large scale line battle event on Saturday the 24th of March

    The first event (drill) will start at 4:00EST/8:00GMT The second event (line battle) will start at 5:00EST/9:00GMT

    The event is not being hosted by one unit but by the general community commanders

    This will be a semi official event as CG will be recording for a trailer for their use

    This will be a double Rank event all lines must be double ranks no excuse's

    The main focus will be following the script that I will provide below then the Line Battle, but prior to the line battle we are asking for units to volunteer themselves for some short scripted drills for video content

    The Line Battle

    Absolutely no trolling by units or individuals will be tolerated

    Respect the attending units, commanders, and event organizers

    They are all doing this to help make sure we get great footage and have a great time

    Reinforcements must move out of spawn in groups

    Union Commanders
    1st In Command Maj, Stone [42nd PA]

    2nd In Command LTC, Mulcahy [5th NY]

    If you are not one of these two you should NOT be an officer when in the union unless assigned by one of them.

    Script Provided below

    Union Forces Moving Into Line

    Red Lines Are Where The Confederates Will Be Blue Is Where the Union Will Be

    The Drill

    Everyone is encouraged to assist with this grand undertaking

    The drill volunteers will get on the USA Drill camp 15 mins prior to the first event start time and should only take about 45 mins to complete

    The goal is to have multiple companies formed and do a short march then some very quick fire drills to create great visual opportunities for promotional videos

    Attendees will be placed within their companies and be asked to stick with them for the drill session

    Everyone is asked to respect the designated commanders so we can get the drill finished as quickly as possible

    We will address which units to spawn as at the event but we want to focus on the Union standard Blue uniforms no unique uniforms

    We already have multiple formed companies volunteering for this

    Note all companies that attend this event and have a positive outcome on the event will have their name in a spot of the credits. I will need names of all companies who are going to take part
    Script Provided below
