REPOST: 43rd Rgmt of Ft

I just got an email from Major Loane of HM 43rd Regiment of Foot that includes some of those hidden gems of the internet.


            Stuck at home and getting bored? Then, take advantage of this opportunity to emerge from the Corona Crisis smarter and able to speak with authority to the public and reenactors alike! How? By reading some of the excellent articles on your very own regiment’s website. Learn about the original units we portray, see examples of original equipment, find out where “Brown Bess” came from and more. Here are links to some great pieces of information that every member should know:

My goal is to bring history alive through interactive portrayal of ordinary American life in the late 18th Century (1750—1799) My persona are: Journeyman Brewer; Cordwainer (leather tradesman but not cobbler), Statesman and Orator; Chandler (candle and soap maker); Gentleman Scientist; and, Soldier in either the British Regular Army, the Centennial Army, or one of the various Militia. Let me help you experience history 1st hand!
