Subject: Where can I find a re-enactor?
What a great event it was on the weekend! It must have been a lot of work
to coordinate all that - well done!! My family and I enjoyed ourselves on
Saturday afternoon and evening, taking in the demonstrations and battles.
Our 3 year old particularly enjoyed marching back towards the camp with the
soldiers after the evening battle!
So I'm doing some planning for Orangeville Canada Day celebrations 2013
(thankfully a little earlier this year!) and while I really enjoyed both war
of 1812 events I've been to this year, I believe that the funding won't be
there for us to do something so full scale. I think it would be great if we
could get one "soldier" that can bring along his tent and pack and be able
to set that up as a small display and give 15 min talks throughout a 3 hour
period (in the evening of July 1, 2013) on what it would have been like to
be a soldier back then (i.e. a glimpse into the life of a soldier). Do you
think there would be a re-enactor out there willing to do that and what do
you think that would cost?
Thanks in advance for your help!
