Die neue Zeitung für Fort Mifflin

This year for Cannonball Tavern I made up a period newspaper with news as it would have been published in March of 1777.  Subsequently, I have have created newspapers for the Lawn Party on June 18 , Patriots vs Loyalist debate on July 2, July 4th, and Siege Weekend on November 14.  These will be available in both the gift shop (sold) and posted in a prominent location in the fort (like the Tavern). There is still an opportunity for you or your group to add your own spin on this endeavor by publishing an ad. I am taking ads from Sutlers selling their wares (either in person or online), military regiments (either to recruit or recover deserters), and individuals (for any topic you choose). Please send me your plain text ad to be included (line art will be accepted at a higher rate). Noncommercial ads (ie not REALLY selling anything) are free.

Draft copies (subject to change) are linked below:

If you think other events need newspapers, 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!
