At the Albany Tulip Festival. My musket is currently being inspected. Another photo from Tulip Festival. All Tulip Festival photos are by Gorden Meeusen. Our camp at the Tulip Festival. We briefly have possesion of a rebel cannon at Ethan Allen Days in Sunderland. A inkjet printout of this picture was given to me by Ed Knight; he says it appeared in a local Sunderland paper. I don't know who took the picture.
An article writen by Gretta Nemcek about her time at the Grand Encampment at Fort Ticonderoga, much of which was with us as French Malice. This appeared in the Glen Falls Post Star on Sunday, 7 July 2002. At the dance during the Burning of Kingston, Oct. 20. I have the pleasure of being accompanied by Shara and Darcy Yaddow. Shari Yaddow took the photos.

Fort Ticonderoga - Grand Encampment

All of the following pictures were taken at the Grand Encampment of the French and Indian War, 2002. We all went as French malice. The photographs were taken by Rebecca Manthey (except the one with her in it). I can't guarantee that the captions are all accurate.

A small group of French marines preparing to go to battle. The French line. The French line. We are the malice in the center of the photo. I give a brief musket lesson to Daniel; Paul and Donnie from James Howard's Company are also participating. The team of oxen; they were the stars of the battle.
