I just spent the morning with the producer for Discovery Channel’s “Moonshiners” at Fort Mifflin. They want to learn to brew Spruce Beer and we’re going to teach them.

March 13 — All Day

I have it on good authority they will spend at least part of the day in shackles. They will attempt to repel His Majesty’s expeditionary force (likely to fail and find themselves in the brig AGAIN). At the end, we will all retire to the Cannonball Tavern. This is “history lite” but great fun.

Should be a great day of gunfights, brewing, and revelry. If you follow this show (I don’t) you can get to met the actors. If you want to help defend or take the fort, let me 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!
