Re-enacting Revolutionary Germantown

Here are some pictures from yesterday's 12 noon battle re-enactment at the Revolutionary Germantown festival. When I got there, the re-enactors were battling it out on Germantown Avenue, in front of Cliveden.


You can't quite tell from this shot, but two women soldiers (the only women re-enactors I noticed) were among those operating the cannon.


A bystander near me told us onlookers that these are Hessian soldiers.


Someone left his or her bicycle and helmet in a very inconvenient battle location. Meanwhile, just outside the photo (and battle), a neighbor was getting a new refrigerator delivered in the midst of musket- and cannon-fire.
