The Battle begins
After the children's Military Muster, the field was cleared and all of the visitors took to lawn chairs on the side of the hill to await the arrival of the British soldiers. The Hill was covered with lots of trees, so we were well protected from the sun, but I felt sorry for the re-enactors in their full wool costumes. When Aidan was finished with his "tour" of duty, his little face was bright red, and he was only wearing the coat and hat and only for about 20 minutes!!
The first people onto the field were the teams manning the cannons.
Here come the Americans.
The Canadians reload their rifles.
