The other Battle on Snowshoes

21 March - Bristol Vermont.
This is a recreation of the March 13, 1758 Battle on Snowshoes, between Robert Rogers' scouting party and Ensigns Langis' and Durantaye's war party. For more on the history, visit the unit's website:

This year, the recreated battle will take place on the Layn Farm in Bristol, VT. This is the same field-and-woods site that we regularly return to every couple of years--the EALR's firing range, for the EALR members.
Unit commanders, as per Jim Ross' instructions: "the scenario will be unveiled to all at inspection. Have all firelocks well cleaned and appropriately appointed ( Stall and Guard). Snow shoes will be required this year. Bring a lunch and plenty of rounds."
