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.
