July 10 - 11 Hubbardton, VT
23rd Royal Welch Fusiliers Light Company

We'll be encamped this weekend at Hubbardton, VT on the only battlefield entirely in vermont. Its a State run historic site with a small visitors center featuring an excellent diorama that explains the whole battle action for you.

This a small reenactment which makes it nice for visitors. you can get up close to everything and have an excellent opportunity to interact with participants. We usually have British regulars, Provincials, Americans and German troops there.

Pictures from last years event can be found at

A schedule of events can be found here and be aware admission is $5 per person, children are free. Wear good shoes as the ground is uneven, no reconstruction has been done here and most of it is just as it was left 233 years ago. Theres no shade so sunscreen is a must too. I'll be with the 23rd, but since I'm not cooking, I'lll most likey be wandering through the british camp. Come visit us!
