- Bonjour everyone!
I have been on the list for the past month or so after my colleagues
John MacLeod and Dave Webb have mentioned its existence. Let me
My name is André Gousse. I have been re-enacting since the early
1980s, first with the King's Royal Regiment of New York (Rev War) and
then as a founding member of the 'Compagnie de milice de Chambly'
(Seven Years War aka F&I War). My day job is at Parks Canada as the
Manager of Interpretive Products at our National Office in Gatineau,
QC. I am also the chair of the Parks Canada's Historic Weapons
Advisory Committee and have been involved in our policies and
regulations in that domain since 1989. Part of my career was also
spent learning the ropes of military curatorship under René Chartrand
as a Military/Fur Trade Curator.
With the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 looming large on the
horizon, I am being tempted to do something for the special
anniversaries coming along. But I am not quite decided about what to
do, although I know it will have to be related to events in "la belle
province" (Chateauguay is a no-brainer). I have been involved ages
ago in one of the first winter events at Ogdensburg, NY.
I am looking forward to participating in the discussions and debates
on this list.
Votre humble et dévoué serviteur,
Milice sédentaire du Bas-Canada

Hello all,My name is Jim Whitley. I'm a longtime reenactor from Charlotte, North Carolina, but new to 1812. My home is the 12th Infantry, a new regiment forming in the mid-Atlantic. I appreciate being allowed to join and hope to absorb much of your collective wisdom in the months ahead.
