American Revolution in Germany

Of course somewhere that Revwar is very popular is Germany - the annual event at Fulda is American Revolution with a particular emphasis on the Hessian involvement which is only natural but there is also some Patriot groups out there and one of my favourites is this one

Redcoats and Revolutionaries

 The Revwar period in the UK is booming - and that's not meant to be a joke - but there are lots of new units forming and old ones dusting off their kit and becoming involved again. You will be able to see them on the small screen soon as they have some filming to do for the BBC for the new Poldark series (a romantic tale set in Cornwall) when they are going to recreate an incident in the Yorktown campaign. So it's all good if you want a period with a rosey future this may be it.
FB page here if you want to get involved in the period.
