Re: new member
- Thanks, Ed. Not realizing the the preapproval on messages from I double
posted my introduction in which I mentioned that I am from Washington,
Pa. My unit as I said is forming Brush's Company, Ohio Militia. This is
a spin off of the 8th Pennsylvania, Ft. Laurens detachment (BAR) based
out of Canton, Ohio. We are basing our impression on the original
information published by The Company of Military Historians. If anyone
has the plate that accompanied that article, I would greatly appreciate

We just opened our Washington Co. Historical Society's Frontier History
Center in Washington, Pa. this past Saturday. We had twenty fellow
reenactors including John and myself portraying a Virginia militia unit
of 1777. Although the weather was rainy, especially in the morning, we
had about 60 visitors. We have built a typical frontier refuge fort in
the backcountry of Virginia/Pennsylvania. It consists of a blockhouse
built of logs from a local 1790 double pen log barn and a square hewn
log house (of about the same vintage) joined by a palisade. There are
also several small outbuildings of new logs and in the future more will
be added to the 22 acre sight. Also under the WCHS lease, adjacent in
the park is a relocated two story 1840's log house, we use for meetings
and educational programs. We plan on conducting monthly public
educational visits manned with local reenactor volunteers and hopefully
two larger events each year to include reenacting units.
More on this later, if there is interest.
Thanks again for the welcome,
