Mackinac and Michigan Territory
- Lloyd, List, et al,
I spoke with Chuck Kibby, yesterday, and it seems we are going to have are
realy "bang up" event at Mackinac this summer.
Friday night promises to be a good starter with a "ship to shore" gun
battle, and the "burn and scuttle" of our mock schooner.
Any Tars and Marines that want to get involved, should contact me off the
list. As well, we would like to see some artillery to fill out our shore
battery. They should be on the ground on Friday, to go through a reheasal.
The "Combined Operations" of North West Company Militia, Native Allies, and
10th Royal Vets welcome any British or Canadian units to join us in the
assault on the town, on Saturday morning. Greg and his boys never put up
much of a fight. We plan to use a secret weapon this year. Leave a barrel
of shrub in front of the town hall, and the Michigan Provincials will all be
drunk when we come ashore.
Chuck has also promised me that I do not have to walk up the front path to
the Fort for Saturday's evening battle on the island. It's a long climb up
that stone wall, for some of us. There are supposed to be supply wagons for
us to "ride up in style!"
If you have never been to Mackinac, then you have missed a key battle in the
fight for British North America. Contact law@... or
agower@... to register.
The dates are 2-3-4 August, 2002.
