Re: US Troops + Fort Henry
> John et all;Sure could have used more US Troops at Fort Henry last week end!!
As a matter of fact it would be to the advantage of the 1812 hobby
in the Great Lakes area to raise a couple of good sized USA Regiments
to oppose the Crown Forces.
This would also eliminate the Brits having to cross dress into USA
Just a thot to those Canucks who want to start a re-enactment
Any Canucks in the Great Lakes area wishing to do a US impression may
want to think about doing a US Marine impression. The "Northern
Detachment" of the USMC currently has 3 members, and is slowly
growing. We are based in the Hamilton/Oakville area in Ontario.
We are closely tied with the USS Constitution 1812 Marines based in
Boston who act as an invaluable resource.
For those considering a US impression, becoming a Marine allows you
to correctly use your white belting, and Brown Bess as part of your
equipment (the Marines were issued Besses bought from the Brit.
Visit them online at:
or contact myself outside the list.
