Old Mill Village Museum's
18th Century Weekend
August 10th & 11th, 2003

Although the threat of rain filled the air and many did not show- the weekend was beautiful
( except for the sudden monsoon during Saturdays Rev War Battle)!
For those that stayed- a treat of slow roasted pig , evening dancing and night time cannon fireing.


Morning gun! Steve fires our 2Pdr, "Somme Beau"


Steve, David & Chuck advance on the enemy......
The humidty was so high after the rain on Saturday...

the cannon smoke hung on the battlefied forever giving us the feeling of "the fog of war"

 



Brighter Skies! ...Forming up for Sunday's Rev War event- Steve & Dave are on the gun crew!


Then the Parade

 


 

 

 

Jim actually gets to take part this year ( well, for a short while)!
