Battle on Snowshoes

A few posts on the theme of winter warfare, which was an important facet of the SYW in America. Wintertime saw a new set of rules for mobile warfare. For the small numbers involved, incidents like the Battle on Snowshoes have captured the imagination of generations. This photo is one I don't know who took it, but it's from the Snowshoes battle reenactment that takes place each March around Ticonderoga but it's such a good photo it needs a larger audience.
