Battle of Newtown 1779 230th anniversary event

Wiki on the battle here.
If you have a taste for exploring the world of the American Revolution and how it impacted on the Iroquois then this weekend's (August 29th and 30th) event - the Battle of Newtown could be just up your street - if you live near Elmira NY that is.
There is a 1779 Native American Village at the site so plenty to take photographs of. Looks like you have an option of taking part in a 'guided woods walk' where you are taken through the reenactment action - this is something we considered for events over interesting perspective.
