Lieutenant Boddy, a generally disrespectable and disrespected, bad bargain of an officer was found shot dead on the Parade Ground, presumably on his way back after carousing in town. While no one, except perhaps his tavern keeper, will mourn the loss of Lt. Boddy we cannot allow vigilante justice within our garrison.

The Fort will be full of likely suspects with personal motives to see the end of the despicable Lieutenant. Your job is to identify our killer and inform the Provost Guard so that the culprit may be apprehended. Clues abound, but you must make inquiries throughout the Fort to discover them.  Listen to the gossip in the Tavern and question our cast of characters to draw your own conclusions.

Visit the tavern and explore the Fort to uncover clues and information about the crime.  Discuss your findings and suspicions and share who YOU would accuse of this terrible crime. Play on your own or assemble a team of sleuths. At the conclusion of the investigation we will convene in the tavern to share the results of all the investigations. The individuals or teams correctly identifying the guilty party will win a reward!

Cash bar (including products of the Regimental Brewmiester) and light snacks available.

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!
