I am looking for re-enactors or a re-enactment group in the Traverse City, Michigan area that re-enacts the French and Indian War and Fur Trade era. Would you happen to know of any?

These are pictures from earlier today here in Michigan... If you are interested in French Milice (which in my humble opinion combines the best of military and civilian re enacting along with the perfect trekking gear) let me know and I can help you get started with your milice impression with our unit here in Michigan.

Along with those mentioned there is a group that do 60th Light Infantry out of Grand Rapids as well as a group that do French Marine out of Alanson I believe.

I am currently working on a French impression circa 1740s and have my 60th light infantry impression together for the most part.

There have been some good post about different Michigan groups, but what type of group or side are you more interested.


French: Milice/ I don't think there are any French Line Regiments in the North

British: 60th/ 2 groups of the 42nd Highlanders/ 80th

Provisional: Mass. Reg. Bagels Coy with Kemmer / Few American Militia Units

Native: A few groups in the north --I think Chippewa?

Pick a side and I am sure that somebody on this board will be able to direct you to the group that will interest you

While I was born and raised in northern Michigan, I am actually no residing down in Florida. I was asking as my sister-in-law is going to NMC and I thought she might want to know about the groups around the area as she used to do it in the Lansing area. They mostly did voyageurs and habitants.
