First Bath 1996


thinking about this event. Was very memorable. Most that took part only knew their immediate group to start with but by the end of the weekend has made many friends.

Raiders of the Mohawk

 

Drums Along the Mohawk director John Ford

A few of us old reenactors in the UK have for the last month been planning a Revwar reenactment group based around the raiders of the Mohawk Valley. Butler's Rangers, Brant's Volunteers and a detachment from the King's 8th. Obviously these things take time but if you have an interest in this project drop me an email.

 There seems to be some ignorance about this subject. The wiki will explain. The book is excellent and ideal if you want more.
