Subject: 1812 Introduction
I'm new to reenacting the War of 1812, but have been a Revolutionary War
reenactor since 1976. Have been a member of H.M.64th Regiment of Foot all
that time, I am still quite active and am a Captain commanding a company of
I reside in the North Carolina Piedmont and am working on a rifle frock to
complete an impression of a militiaman of the Wake Volunteer Guards. Since I
was actually reenacting during the Rev War Bicentennial, I do get the
privilege of portraying a "76" man. I'll be regaling the younger members of
the unit about how I was at the front line at Hannah's Cowpens, and how we
sent Banny Tarleton running!
I look forward to gathering a lot of information from you in my first
serious foray outside the period of the Revolution. I hope to meet some of
you in the flesh at upcoming reenactments.

We portray the Canadian Fencibles c. 1814-16 and perform in daily music and artillery demonstrations throughout July and August. I began volunteering at Fort York at age 9 and have been employed for the past couple of summers. I couldn't ask for a better summer job.

Our sixty-second "Heritage Minute" dramatizes the winter march of the 104th Regiment in 1813. I used the wartime diary of Lieutenant John Le Couteur as the basis for the script.
