Rabble in Arms - Lake Champlain Maritime Museum - 2001

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, Sunday 26 August 2001

Unless otherwise noted, all photographs were taken by and are copyright by David William Manthey. Click on a photograph to see a larger version.

These pictures were taken either on the Philadelphia II or at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. Those with reeanctors are part of the Rabble In Arms event where a full crew of 44 people sailed the Philadelphia II, including spending the night on her. The other photographs are of a post and beam building that is being constructed around an old marine engine. The Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is well worth visiting.

I didn't take many pictures of the reenactment, mainly because I was too busy rowing, handling lines, and enjoying myself. Kris Jarrett has many more photographs here.
