Living History at Fort Mifflin

Philadelphia, PA

September 22 - 23, 2007

For the second year, The 61st NY invited us to join them for a living history demonstration at Fort Mifflin. And just as last year, three from the 67th NY made the trip including two first-time visitors to the Fort. In addition to drilling demonstrations for the public, we had a couple of tactical skirmishes inside and outside the Fort. Plus we helped in making an educational video for the Fort's school programs.
