July 24th, 2011: Land Battle Re-enactment of French and Indian War at Ogdensburg, NY
For this event I have broken the activity into two sections. This post covers the land battle portion. If interested in our other postings of the July 24th, 2011 Ogdensburg water battle re-enactment, please see:
Water Battle Re-enactment of French and Indian War at Ogdensburg, NY July 24th, 2011
This is the third year that Graeme and I have traveled to Ogdensburg, NY to photograph the various re-enactments. Our Previous postings of these events can be found at:
July 2009 – Plains of Abraham re-enactment
July 2010 – 250th anniversary of the French and Indian Wars. (WATER BATTLE)
July 2010 – 250th anniversary of the French and Indian Wars. (LAND BATTLE)
Last year’s event marked the 250th anniversary and was very well attended both by participants and by attendants. This year’s, attendance was somewhat lower but, as the re-enactment began, a good number of spectators found comfortable viewing positions to watch the events unfolding before them.
In previous outings I had focused more on the action than on the actual uniforms. This time around, I was looking more at the various uniforms both of the combatants on the field of battle as well as outfits worn be the women providing support behind the lines.
