The Garrison Weekend was hosting by members of the Sally Port Mess.  The goal was to have a small, intimate event which was heavy on history.  The impression was a detachment of the 19th Regiment of Infantry, 2nd Battalion Company D in August of 1865.  All of the activities and scenarios throughout the weekend were based on historical research.  The event was greatly enjoyed by all of the participates and was a huge success.
