Where to Muster

2TGD8hG.png

All Army of the Potomac officers are obligated by ACWGC Club Rule and Union Army Standing Orders to make a “Muster Report” once each month as a requirement of their membership. Your Muster Report serves as a statement that you are still active in the club!

Mustering is the individual officer’s responsibility. It’s not your Division, Corps or Army Commander’s responsibility . . . it’s yours! No one has the time to dig through the Department of Records and examining your game record to see if you’re still active. No one has the time to be contacting your former opponents to find out if you’re there or not. It’s all up to you.

Mustering is considered an opportunity to stand with your fellow officers once each month and make recognition of a common interest and commitment. It’s just plain, good manners and a privilege! Where else do we as members of the ACWGC receive so much for so little in return? By making our own, individual Muster Report we are expressing that we are responsible as members of the club, that we have a common, shared interest, and that we acknowledge that same thing in our brother officers. WE ARE SALUTING EACH OTHER AND HAVING FUN IN THE PROCESS!

Of course, there’s a very good, practical reason why we do this, too! Mustering is the mechanism by which we keep tabs on who's still around, or who is still active or not. We do that because we've an excellent, active and functioning roster and game record program that lies at the heart of the operation of the club's primary reason for existence...the sanctioned playing of these wonderful games with opponents who share the same motivations. All of us who are here now will someday leave by choice or circumstance. None of us will be here forever. When that happens, it should be known. Sometimes, however, an officer will simply walk away without notification or be unavoidably erased from active participation because of loss of financial support, family emergency, illness or death, or disinterest, etc. Mustering provides us with the means of the possibility of knowing when that happens.

- Gen. Joseph Meyer (May 2018)

Why We Muster

Mustering in the Army of the Tennessee will occur at the Department of Records. Each mustering period will run from the 1st of the month to the last day of the month. 

Mustering in the Army of the Potomac is handled through the chain of command and conducted as determined by the Army Commander.
