The Best in Battle Reenacting!
This living history group is organized solely for two purposes:
- Educating the public about the life and times of men and followers from MASSACHUSETTS REGIMENTS during the Seven Year’ War (French and Indian War)
- To enjoy colonial tactical experiences
Our major emphasis shall be to help increase the ability of living historians and historical sites achieve quality interpretation. We are dedicated individuals and want to excel in our chosen time of historical research. We wish to see the portrayal of the thousands of Americans who fought in Massachusetts Regiments portrayed at historic sites and living history gatherings around the U.S.
We are a family unit and wish to keep with the comradeship developed through the family associations we develop by our friendships. We not only bring our individual families into participation but work hard to create a FAMILY UNIT during events, gatherings, parties and in front of the public and after the public leaves us in the evenings.
We pride ourselves in expanding our research and sharing the information we find. We dedicate ourselves to constantly strive for the authenticity of our BATTALION. We have over 200 primary documents to draw our research from at present ranging from diaries, letters, orderly books, journals, and assorted papers. Finally we have our own fortified blockhouse on private wooded acreage. This serves as the headquarters for our unit. We also host several events through the year at our fort that we have named Ft. Bagley.
We also have several artillery pieces to enhance our interpretation. We have over 50 families in our organization.
