Living History at Fort Mifflin
Philadelphia, PA
September 9 - 10, 2006

The 61st NY invited us to join them for a living history demonstration at Fort Mifflin, the very same place that gave birth to our own Mifflin Guard. Built by the British in Colonial times, Fort Mifflin sits on the banks of the Delaware and is wedged tightly between Philadelphia International Airport and the Seaport. Ships and planes came so close to our walls that they didn't need to pay the price of admission to see the show. Three of our own traveled down to test out the fort for the first time and we are very glad to have made the effort. It's a historical site that shamefully does not get the attention it deserves.
