It was a different time.
A time when Washington was a militia colonel.
A time when Franklin was best known as a scientist. A time when Bostonians drank tea.
A time when the British were the good guys.
Welcome to a new era for Colonial Gothic, as the pages of history are tuned back to a time prior to the American Revolution. In The French & Indian War, players and gamemasters are presented with the tools and sources they need to run their games during this critical time of American history.
Join General Wolfe at the Siege of Quebec. Walk the woods with Hawkeye, Chingachgook and Uncas. Raid with Rogers' Rangers. Or pair this book with the New France sourcebook and fight to drive the British out of North America!
The French & Indian War includes historical background, new rules, adventure seeds, and game statistics for the leading personalities of the period 1754-1763.

An officer (2nd from right) and men of the American Regiment organized to capture the Spanish colony of Cartagena. Except for the more practical light weight linen of the campaign dress shown on the right, the issued uniform was based upon the pattern worn by the British Army of the period.

From Don's Facebook page. The incident depicts Two Kettles Together loading a musket for her wounded husband Honyere Tehawenkarogwen 'he who takes up the snowshoe'. More information on this from an Oneida perspective here in Oneida Hanyery vs. Joseph Brant.

On this weekend. And they have snow. Posted on the Fort Ti Facebook page.
TICONDEROGA, N.Y. — Fort Ticonderoga is hosting a wintertime re-enactment this weekend, with dozens of people expected to restage what is known as the Battle on Snowshoes.
The fort is closed for the winter but is reopening for Saturday's event, being held to commemorate the French and Indian War battle that was fought 254 years ago this Tuesday. About three dozen re-enactors are expected to participate.
The battle pitted Rogers' Rangers against a larger force of French and Indians. Losses were heavy on both sides as the combatants had to fight on snowshoes because of deep snow in the eastern Adirondacks.
Two larger re-enactments of the battle have been staged in Ticonderoga, including one in 2000 that attracted about 400 re-enactors and was held on the actual site of the battle, now home to the Ticonderoga Country Club.

18th Century North America. After more than 20 years of conflict, the 13 American colonies and the British Crown are on the brink of all out war. Battle lines are drawn. Bloodshed is inevitable.
Out of the embers of his burning village, a new assassin will rise. Born of Mohawk and British blood, his fight for freedom and justice will be forged in the flames of revolution. WIKI

Thanks to Steve Stanley for reminding me about this. The actor who played Magua, Philip Madoc, in this version, has just passed away so I post this in tribute. It was another impetus for a young me to get into the period and he was particularly chilling in it. This was filmed in the highlands of Scotland and is available on DVD
This event was such a successful 250th anniversary
they are doing it all over again in 2014.

German reenactment magazine
I was so excited by the idea of the movie New France starring Gerard Depardieu - also called Battle of the Brave in anglophone countries, but it would seem that there is very little to celebrate from what people have seen it have said. Have you seen it? This image is good though and when I saw it I thought at last but it was not to be. Maybe one day?
This pivotal event occurred today in 1770. Wiki here.
There's a reenactment of this event on the 10th of March hosted by the Bostonian society. Event page here
Here's what it says
Join us and become a part of this infamous event as it is reenacted in front of the Old State House, in the very place where it took place in 1770. Decide for yourself if the soldiers fired into the crowd in self-defense or cold-blooded murder. Before the action unfolds, hear from patriots, loyalists, and moderates who will talk about the events and attitudes that led to that fateful night. Free; in front of the Old State House. Time: 1900-2200
