" ... battles we attended were at sites which were more historically
correct.....grass long ...
The problems with this is .... as a spectator ... we could not see
the bodies ... the smaller (cannons) ..."
I find it interesting, the observations of the Spectators as per those of
Re-enactors at events. I have the liberty to experience both as the
The spectator is quick to notice wrist watches and Tim Horton coffee
cups but fail to notice the hand sewn tents or incorrect material or cut of
a female's clothing.
The re-enactor on the other hand wants the field to be exactly as it was
1813, but has no problems with Coleman coolers and bucksinner chairs
The long grass, at the May 24-25 Talbot Settlement Reenactment near Port
Ontario, according to a couple farmers of the area, had added to the
tics. Re-enactors were warned if they laid or walked in the tall grass to
these vermin as they can cause sickness.
