Standing Orders of the Commander-in-Chief

 

 

Standing Order of His Excellency dated November 21, 2010 in regards to reorganization of First Division

The recent addition of two new officers and regiments to the American Continental Army has necessitated a reorganization of First Division. Henceforth, the 1st New Jersey Regiment and 3rd New York Regiment will join the newly created 1st New York Regiment and Maxwell's Light Infantry, commanded by Corporal Maddis and Corporal Travers respectively, in a brigade of New York and New Jersey Regulars.

General Cox will remain in command of the more appropriately renamed Militia Brigade of the First Division, containing the militias of Hunterdon County (NJ), Gloucester County(NJ), and King and Queens County (NY). Lieutenant Truitt will continue to lead the Advance Guard as well as serve in his capacity as Aide-de-Camp to the Commander-in-Chief.

Major General Osborne, DSM
Commander-in-Chief of the American Continental Army

Standing Order of His Excellency dated March 20, 2010 in regards to Activity Level 

Beginning with March 2010, the American Continental Army will institute an Activity Level determination incorporated into our roster. There will be four activity levels, High, Moderate, Low, and Inactive, based on a combination of muster and game completion. Last muster and last game completed will be displayed in the roster for reference, as well.Mustering every month is best for your activity level, but within the past three months will count for something. Completing a game within the past three months is also best, but one in the past six months and one in the past year would each also contribute at least something to your activity level determination.The highest level of activity can be achieved by those who muster monthly, or at least quarterly, in combination with competing on average a game every three to six months. At the other end of the scale, to avoid inactive status a member needs to muster on average once per quarter and complete a game on average every year.

Those holding administrative positions within the army [CiC, Division CO, Brigade CO, Aides-de-Camp] are expected to maintain at least a Low activity level to retain their position and receive the monthly administrative points. Members who fall below Inactive because of lack of game completions or mustering for an extended period will be removed from the roster and Club membership. A two week period will be allowed before removing the member from the roster. In these situations, a return to action will require reenlistment and starting over at the lowest rank, retraining may be required in some circumstances.

Commander-in-Chief of the American Continental Army

Standing Order of His Excellency dated February 16, 2010 in regards to Muster Process

Beginning with March 2010, the process of monthly musters will change. Muster will now be done on the CCC Message Board in the Fraunces Tavern forum, and during a defined period within each month. At the beginning of every month, between the 1st and 5th, Division COs will each post a message calling for those under their command to muster, and they will send an email reminder to each of you announcing the muster.Each member of the American Continental Army is then expected to visit the forum NO LATER THAN the 15th of the month and post a reply to his Division's muster call. Replies must include at least an indication that the officer is present for active duty. Officers are encouraged to elaborate however, perhaps identifying active games, and new and completed games since their last muster.Divisional COs are considered to have themselves mustered by initiating the post in Fraunces Tavern. The CiC will muster with the division in which his reserved regiment is assigned.Mustering is a demonstration of your involvement in the Club and the American Continental Army, and monthly mustering is a requirement. Mustering will be a component in determining each officer's formal activity level and ultimately, a factor in “inactive” classification and possible removal from the Army roster and club membership.

Standing Order of His Excellency dated September 16, 2010 in regards to Army Reorganization

It is with great pleasure that I inform you now of the substantially completed consolidation and re-organization of military forces defending our thirteen free and independent American states.

Twelve of our number took advantage of this re-organization to select new, more historically or personally relevant regiments to command, and all twenty-one active members are now organized into five battalions and two divisions, part of a single new American Continental Army. General Wilson and Colonel Osborne have continued in senior positions (divisional commands) as part of the new OOB. They have been joined by Generals McClellan and Cox, and Lieutenants Spitz and Smith, who have all assumed brigade CO duties in addition to their unit commands. A shortage of volunteers has left one brigade CO and three aide-de-camp positions unfilled. A great place to start if you want to get involved in some of the administrative duties is an aide-de-camp position - so do not hesitate in contacting the senior staff if you are interested. Not only will you have the honor of serving your army even further, but also remember that administrative participation is a requirement for advancement into the General ranks.As our membership changes, so too now will the OOB and its structure. New members will select their own units, rather than from among pre-determined “available” ones. They can be added to existing under-strength brigades, large brigades split to create new regimental spots, and new divisions formed by combining brigades ones from existing divisions. Our goal is to maintain a relatively full-strength OOB – brigades of 3-5 regiments each and divisions of 2-3 brigades each – that knits members more tightly together. Part of our effective OOB growth and adaptation will be determined by the willingness of members to step forth and assume the leadership responsibilities that accompany the necessary new senior command positions.
