Battle of Backus Mill 2018

backus2018

The Battle of Backus Mill continues to be a perennial favourite of the Incorporated Militia.  The Village staff and the hosting Norfolk Militia always treat us well!  This year we took on members of the Canadian Volunteers, the US 22nd and the US 19th.  The Royal Scots, The 89th and a lone Glenny filled out the Redcoat line with us!

 Brenda Lightfoot’s period dance workshop and calling at the evening barn dance was a hit again!

Mississinewa 2016!

 

Four members traveled the 8 hours by van to Marian Indiana to participate in this year's Battle of Mississinewa. From all reports, it was well worth the drive! What a great way to finish off the end of the official 2016 season! Football stadium seating, rows and rows of sutlers, 1812 re-enactors from all over the US a chance to educate the public about the real War of 1812 were the highlights of the long Thanksgiving (for us) weekend!
