After many years of interest I'm dipping my toe in the re-enacting waters. I live in Maine and I'm interested in the Maine frontier circa the 18th century. This includes the northern version of longhunters/trappers, F/I War and Revolution.

I'm looking for resources specific to my region other than Martha Ballard and "Liberty Men and the Great Proprietors". Can anyone help me out? Thanks.

this book might be a good place to start research:

The Forts of Pemaquid, Maine : an archaeological and historical study

bassaiguy, I think the following books will searve you well, "A Peoples Army" By Fred Anderson, Charles Mahaffie Jr.'s, "A Land of Discord Always", "New England Encounters" by Alden T. Vaughan, "Black Robe on the Kennebec" by Mary R. Calvert. I live in Hallowell. If you need help, contact me, I'll do anything that I can to help get you started. Paul

Thanks a lot, guys. I appreciate the help. My reading list is certainly growing! Paul, I'm up in the Orono area, but I certainly won't hesitate to call on you - thanks for the offer.
