A Day in the Life of the 9th Ky

This weekend Dudeboy and I joined the rest of the 9th Ky for a special event where one could "Experience the daily life of a soldier, and the parallel life of their loved ones at home as the men of the Ninth Kentucky keep to the schedule in General Orders No. 8 from the papers of their very own Marcus Woodcock."  Which meant reveille was at 5am and then we drilled and drilled some more . . . a typical day in the life of the 9th Ky.  Below is a copy of the actual schedule written out by Woodcock.
