I am Rick Brainard, I am not a re enactor myself, I subscribe to this list to learn about the period in which most of you portray at the AWI and F&I events.
In real life I am an independent scholar with a B.S. degree in history from Emporia State University... Kansas folks.
I have learned quite a bit from you and I mostly just lurk.
I run a web site on 18th century, you will get the URL in my sig file.
Thanks for letting me just sit back and learn.
