One more volley boys, then fall back
and they will get a load of grapeshot.







A close up look at woodland warfare in the 1750's

This year at Old Mill Village's 18th Century event over 200 members of the public were escorted in to the forest
where reenactors of the French & Indian War period staged a woodland battle and attack of our escorts.
Yes, it was frightening and realistic and not for the "faint of heart"
but is gave us a glimpse into this troubled time in our country's history


On the lighter side! I did say LITE!
The "Great Flambe" thrilled the crowds with his death defying feats!

Fire, I believe was a great delicacy in the 18th Century
and nobody serves it up better then Kenneth

Katie starts the pilot light!
A man with his tongue on fire!
"How does he do it?" 





Interaction with the public:
The 24th Conn. Militia Regiment's members share their wealth of knowledge with the visitors.
