Every year our battalion gathers at Fort Bagley in mid Michigan to train for the summer’s campaign against the French and their Savage allies.  This year we had 15 Officers, NCOs and Centinels, including one new trooper, Mike “The Butcher” Kelly.  The weather was pleasant and we spent the morning marching, working on movements, evolutions and the manual of arms.  After foraging in town for lunch, the afternoon was spent spent in firing drills and a short lecture on the Regiment’s history by Major Kemmer.

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.

The Battalion turned out for the Annual Kalazamoo Living History Show to run our booth, stump for recruits and let the public see what we do.  We managed to get this great group shot of our booth.250-001

The Cass River Encampment at Frankemuth was a great success! Trish took some pictures and has them up at Photobucket (choose from Civilians or Soldiers). A slideshow of her Soldier and battle photos are shown at the bottom.

The Battalion made a showing at the Kalamazoo Living History show once.  This year the shows venue was substantially upgraded and the new building is very very nice.  The show was roomy and easy to navigate compared to its cramped site in previous years.  Below is a  photobucket feed of the pictures Trish took at the show.  (Explaining the random dress pictures…)

Thanks to everybody that made it out to the show and we look forward to participating again next year.
