Revwar event in the UK

 The Rev war comes to Yorkshire! On the weekend of the 18th and 19th September 2021 at Oakwell Hall, Birstall, W Yorkshire. 

Members of the 6th Virginia, 33rd Foot and 43rd foot plus guests will garrison the house and clash in a skirmish!

This event commemorates the Batt family, Who were ruined by the English Civil War. In the early 18th century they emigrated to Virginia and set up a plantation near Richmond.

At the time of the Revolutionary war, the Batt descendants were part of the Virginia militia.
