Check out www.snowshoemen.com


Harmon's Company does 1675-1775 events throughout New England and NY.

Woodland Confederacy is a New England Indian group that covers late 17th to mid 18th century.

We'll be doing mostly NY events (since that was the AO for the original unit) but depending on the BAR schedule, we may hit New England.

Mohawk Valley (West of Albany)
Schoharie Valley (SW of Albany)
Some Hudson/Delaware Valley (South and SW of Albany)

I am interested in finding a group with activities in New England and Eastern, NY. Sounds like you may fit that area.
The one issue I have come across is most wonít except a Pennsylvania Style Flintlock as an appropriate arm.
There is historical precedence for volunteers who possessed such arms in both the F&I and Revolutionary Wars.
I have one that I hunt with and donít really want to buy a musket that I will only use for reenacting.
Would this be acceptable to your units?

Thank You,
David Oliver

Depends on the persona you choose and the firelock itself.

For instance, as an Iroquois warrior, we can document rifles in your hands in the SWJ Papers starting around 1760. In the same area, the only white man I've found that owned a rifle was Sir William Johnson himself.

Something generic like a Pedersoli "Pennsylvania", no. A custom/semi-custom piece built to reproduce an early Lancaster or British Trade rifle of the 1760-1780 period, sure.

I have a Pedersoli frontier standard (Cabela's Blue Ridge). It is the definition of generic.

I had one of those. Nice gun, but not suitable for the period.

We have loaners available for folks that are saving for a firelock that is suitable.

Sorry I missed these posts; It was hunting season!. Northeast Mass is dominated by the battleroad scenario so you have to go west. My advice is to check out the schedules at Fort at No. 4 in Charlestown, NH www.fortat4.org. They will have three F&I weekend events this year and you can meet the New England groups there. Historic Deerfield has also sponsored raids in the past (www.historic-deerfield.org) where you might be able to meet people.

The Pequaket Alliance is a New England F&I group, they portray Millice but are open to other portrayals. I don't know the English side very well but there are quite a few Ranger units in NE.

Some good advice I got was just to build your kit, show up and re-enact. You will be welcome...every side needs guides and just stick with what you want to do.

Maybe you already know about the Wampanoag homesite at Plimouth Plantation, it is definitely worth checcking out. The bookstore there is pretty good too.

Thanks Turning Bear,
I have hooked up with Warner's Regiment (green mountain boys) but am still looking for a less military activity.

That weapon is NOT a reproduction of anything.Its a new fabrication for modern hunter's and target shooters.Any 18th century group worth a fig would find it unacceptable.

I have since acquired a 1st model bess. So the rifle question at this time no longer applies.
