Thought I'd start off this thread with a wee bit of renaissance re-enacting ...

About ten years ago, my dad and i attended a festival. When the 95th rifles and Old Guard stopped to have their photo taken, Darth Vader walked in between them. They should have given him the Sharpe end :biggriin:

I went to a AWI re-enactment couple years back. Loved it!

Suspect there'll be more of those moving forward into the 250th anniversary.  I'm looking forward to it.

I just watched a video about the earliest surviving photos. A couple of them are of Revolutionary war veterans. Their grand parents would have been around in Peter the Greats time. Technology is bridging the generation gap.
