Bittburg Appoints New Army Commander

The Hon. Ludwig Stauffenberg, recently appointed Prime Minister of the Revolutionary Council today promoted Albert Brendel to Colonel and commander of the Union Army of Bittburg. Born and raised in Bittburg. Albert left home 8 years ago for England to seek adventure. Albert spent the last 5 years in India where he served as a captain in the military forces of the East India Company.

Also while in session, as his first act Colonel Brendel demanded that the Council make a proclamation; Order #1 announcing that all able bodied men and women of Bittburg and the surrounding areas to report for military duty. Whether sewing uniforms, aiding the sick, cooking, chopping wood or fighting, all would be needed to win this fight and stop the army of Saxe-Huack from marching into the capital and ending the dream of a free republic in the heart of Europe.

Colonel Brendel is not alone in his challenge to equip and train an adequate army to fight Saxe-Huack. The Colonel brought several close friends with him from India whom he has appointed as officers and given staff and command positions. He also sent another comrade from India back there with funds to purchase artillery pieces from the East India Company.
