For both days of the Siege this weekend, we assembled and ran a tavern. Admittedly, it was Loyalist Country and the abiding presence of the 1NJV and various Privateers may have limited how many Continental soldiers were present but we had a great experience and I have been asked by many to ensure that this is a permanent feature of reenactments at Fort Mifflin in the future.
We had games; a menu that included beer, coffee, hot chocolate, and small snacks; as well as programs by the Colonial Spymaster, presentation of Loyalty Oaths, and sea shanties by the Seadogs. We even had a paranormal encounter. All in all, this was a great weekend.
