      All,



      The 18th Annual Battle of Great Bridge reenactment will take place from
      10:00 AM - 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday 1 & 2 December 2012 in Chesapeake,
      Virginia on the actual site of the battle which took place December 9, 1775.
      There will be two battles each day; the Battle of Kemps Landing at 1:00 PM
      (British win!) and the Battle of Great Bridge at 3:00 PM (Patriots win!)
      There will be military encampments, period sutlers, colonial crafts and
      music, children's colonial activities, a colonial fashion show (@ 2:30PM),
      and a colonial religious service on Sunday (@ 10:00 AM). Firewood, straw,
      porta-johns, water, a heated restroom, and Saturday night dinner is
      provided. Units with six or more men under arms or with cannon will be
      compensated for powder. You can set up on Friday 2 December after noon.

      You can even make the Grand Illumination celebration at Colonial
      Williamsburg after the final battle on Sunday!
