Of course I forgot my camera this weekend. Fortunately, I have friends who are more camera-conscientious than I am. A few choice shots:
Before the battle--the British line troops venture out from their position behind the fence. Notice how they left their packs behind.
Little did they expect the Congressional forces to deploy from a narrow path in the woods--aha! The company below is an amalgamation of the sad remnants of three units--I suppose the rest have been lost in battle, or perhaps are ill. Or perhaps didn't manage to show up this weekend. Regardless, below, we have the French Lauzan's Legion (light blue), the First Dragoons(dark blue and red), and the Continental Marines (green). Which makes them, we decided, the First Continental Allied Legion of Seahorses.
And they put up quite an impressive rate of fire. And see? I'm in the picture, too. I'm the straw hat on the far right-hand side.
A slight distraction emerges from the undergrowth--Loyalist rangers.
How--and when--was your Labor Day Weekend?
