Fall Muster: The Storming of Bolton, 1644
Native, Dutch English and French re-enactors (c.1650-90 kit allowed)
are invited to this event that focuses on the interaction between Europeans
and Natives c.1680. Activities included a trade scenario, matchlock
firing demos, 17th century clothing discussions and an afternoon battle
(Natives/French vs. English/Dutch). Site offers the use of the reconstructed
prehistoric houses for Native and French re-enactors, as space allows.
Dutch/English are encamped close to the village in a lightly wooded
area. While some native re-enactors are already registered, the site
is still looking to attract more; please contact them with anyone appropriate.
Possible stipend, free powder, or gas this year; depends on size of
final funding (grant).
Pirates by the Bay!
Pirate encampment (modern bathrooms, no site fee, etc.), with daily activities based on 1670-90s period around the real history of piracy and its connections to Havre de Grace, to include drill, tactical engagement as pirates attack the "town", witness the hangings and other living history activities. More details to follow, but muster is also open to ECWSA members with latter period coats (First Foot Guard/Jeffrey's Regt.) to portray the Crown Forces (tentative ECWSA participation).
