Re: [War Of 1812] New Orleans - Upper Canada - after the War
- I wrote a very long-winded response to this but decided against sending it. You should all thank me. ;-)
I merely worry about national rivalries getting in the way of good re-enactment fun. I have put aside my own in favour of supporting the "hobby" and it has enabled me to see the "truth" more readily, but I know some who will never wear the colour of the other side because of some misplaced "pride". I just don't understand it.
"What if's" are fun to contemplate but belong in the realm of fiction, in my opinion. Forgive me if I do not embrace them as anything more than intellectual exercises that I believe do not belong here.
Then again, this list is for things other than 1812 re-enactment.
My friends, I will now make use of my delete button more often and keep silent, for I would not stifle what many must feel is valuable.

And of course, when considering New Orleans, it is Packenham's orders
