Fort Mifflin on TV

Okay folks, its about to happen. The wounds are not all healed and the beer is not yet ready to drink but all of the work we put into making the TV programs for both the Discovery and Travel Channels (highlighting different aspects of Fort Mifflin) are about to come to fruition.

May 4 — Moonshiners American Spirit: Ben Franklin’s Spruce Booze.

The Regimental Brewmeister taught the host how to make “good spruce beer” as part of the Continental rations as ordered by Gen Washington. Battle scenes were created by the about 50 of the Delaware Valley’s BEST Reenactors (Donegal Rifles, 6th PA, 3rd NJ, 1st DE, Northhampton Militia and HM 1st NJ Volunteers).

May 7 — Portals to Hell — Fort Mifflin
Travel Channel

The hosts investigate a Fort Mifflin ‘s Revolutionary War history and stories of the fortress’ ghosts of wars long past. They peel back the layers of haunted history and discover something unexpected is stationed at historic Fort Mifflin.

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!
