Earlier this month we had our annual Holiday meeting where we all got together to discuss last year, plan for the upcoming year and have some fun. Our reenacting family is growing, but we’d still love to have more friends to share our hobby with. Our group has a variety of men, women and children who are active participants. For us, reenacting is for the whole family. If you are considering joining us, come check us out at an event or contact us ahead of time and maybe you can come and join us on the field!

Hey Everybody,


I’ve got some great pictures from the Battalion Fall Challenge Event, held at Fort Bagley in Houghton Lake MI on September 13th, 14th and 15th.  Our annual fall challenge is a private event to build our skills, test the things we’ve learned and celebrate another excellent year of reenacting the conflicts of the 18th Century.  Check out the photos to see the fun we had.  This event is open to other reenacting units.  Contact Major Kemmer for details.

Sunday July 14th, we visited the Tall Ship Festival in Bay City Michigan. It was a lot of fun seeing ships, some were even really close to the time period we portray in the mid 18th century.

The never ending quest for experiences to enhance or add to your repertoire of reenacting keeps individuals and unit commanders continually busy.  For years I have tried to work on such things for my own unit, The Massachusetts Provincial Battalion.  In the fall each year we host an event at our fort, Ft. Bagley, in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan.  (In 2013 our event is September 14-15.)  We call the event our Challenge Weekend.  This past year, 2012, I decided to give the men a more extensive workout in an attempt to give them the feel of more skills used by our historic counterparts.
