Smithtown Heritage Festival

Smithtown, NY

September 16, 2007

Whereas we're always cursed in the Spring, for some unfathomable reason we always have brilliant weather at the Smithtown Historical Society's Heritage Country Fair. We fielded six men this year (three having camped overnight) and performed our living history routine of drill, firing, and interacting with the audience. Attendance seemed much higher than last year as we were constantly talking with the public. Our Rebel adversaries were thin in ranks however we still managed to give the public a demo of 'skirmishing' in the middle of the day.
