War of 1812

War on weekends only...We decided to take in the re-enactment taking place at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum last weekend.

There were tents set up where the folks actually spent the night.

There were activities like testing you on how well you can do different knots.

There was a fashion show were red coats, blue coats and green coats all spoke and described life on the battlefield.

The museum was set up to look like it might in those days.

And then they got down to business.

Lots of shooting. I got mixed up as to who was who. I thought the redcoats fought the blue but there was also green (Glengarry Light Fencibles) and various non-uniformed fighters.

I could have used a program!

Richard got into the spririt of the day, however...

Great shots of the guys shooting - or maybe great shots of the shots? Whatever!

Looks like it was a great time. I have yet to get in on one of these reenactments, must try to do that next year, either Glengarry or Chrysler's Farm.

SLeeping in those tents is NOT an appealing prospect!! But Richard looks cute in his outfit.
