|Many Strings (Kim L., professor of music at the University of Western Ontario), Robby, and myself at the question period. I portrayed a Canadian local militiaman and Robby, a member of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.|
|The US raiders at the house. Jonathan, our first sergeant, Lyle, and Owen.|
|The raiders take the house after "shooting" the farmer. Lyle's son, in red, was sort of a junior militiaman.|
|The Crown forces counterattack.|
|Kim/Many Strings awaits his moment to charge with his deadly "foam-ahawk." |
He took down Lyle in the afternoon raid and scalped Owen in the morning show.
|Nick from our group portraying Colonel Talbot. |
The Colonel was a major factor in the settling of this part of Ontario.
|Jeff, Robby, Owen, and Lyle drill the "Mini-militia." All the boys and girls present are 'conscripted' to |
learn drill with wooden muskets. Always fun to see. Jeff does a great job and parents take lots of photos.
|Robby cuts loose with Brown Bess. He's dressed in the uniform of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment |
and was told that he wears it well.
|In answer to a boy's question, Jeff shows how a Native warrior could defeat a bayonet with a knife and tomahawk... providing the soldier was alone. I joined Robby a few minutes later and showed the youngster how the line defeats the single warrior.|
