CHICKAMAUGA, GA (Times Free Press) -- If the idea of shooting off a cannon while dressed as a Civil War soldier appeals to you, now's your chance.
The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park is seeking artillery cannoneers to take park in re-enactments this summer and fall at Chickamauga Battlefield and on Lookout Mountain. The first training session is on Saturday, May 5.
"We're just trying to get some new blood," said Park Ranger Gerry Allen, who's in charge of the park's black powder program.
The catch? You have to dress like a Union soldier. The park's cannoneers are all federal troops.
