When reenacting or acting as a historical interpreter, its good to have a few historical dates and stories to share. This series will publish a few.

November 19, 1794 — Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Navigation, Between His Britannic Majesty and the United States of America (AKA the Jay Treaty) facilitated ten years of peaceful trade between the United States and Britain in the midst of the French Revolutionary Wars.  This treaty, however, had a chilling effect on relations with France resulting in a “Quasi War” just short of actual combat.

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!
