Countdown to Culloden

Friday we leave for our first event of the season. This is not our typical event; we’ve only done 1745 a time or two before. In this time, it’s the Scottish Clans and the British government at odds with one another. Our fellas play the government troops, and we are surrounded by Kilt wearing men on all sides. There will be bagpipes and most likely some Scottish games, probably a musical gathering Saturday night and yes, a battle on both Saturday and Sunday. More details can be found at if you’re inclined to come see the spectacle. Fort Plain is a new location for us but I’m told its easy to find, right off I90. I’ll be camping with the British Grenadiers, 27th Inniskilling with the tall pointy caps, which should make us easy to find on the campground. Look me up if you come to visit.
