- Feb 21, 2009Gentlemen,
For what it's worth on this subject, here's the view of a Redcoat
Highlander Private. I would only be interested in a Waterloo in
Europe, portraying my own unit. Cost, logistics, politics can all be
overcome, individually if necessary.
No setting can beat the actual thing: marching thru tall rye in a
kilt, forming a square agains hoards of French Cavalry, having the
Piper pipe around the outside of the Square in the thick smoke...
truely the closest one can get to a Time Machine.
2015 will give me 30 years in reenacting, and I too plan to hang up
the musket and bonnet; hopefully passing them on to my Grandson. It
is a worthy goal and I am glad to see it being talked about this
early. I am willing to bet it will be a very big event in Europe, and
CFNA can only add to it. I look forward to reliving history again!
