    This year celebrated the 45 anniversary of the Feast of the Hunters' Moon, a re-creation of the annual fall gathering of the French and Native Americans which took place Fort Ouiatenon, a fur-trading outpost in the mid - 1700s. During this period, the area was controlled at various times by France, England, Spain, Indigenous Peoples and American forces.

    The two day festival draws thousands of reenactors and 40,000-50,000 visitors.

    Nice pics! What lens{es} did you use?
    British Soldier

    If this is a British soldier he would have to be in the artillery as the coat is dark blue and not red. The other possibility would be an American Colonial in British service{the coat colors were reversed for Americans serving with the British}. German regiments often used blue too but I don't think any German{Hessian} regiments were used in North America during this war{they were used a great deal in the Revolution}.

    For all these photos I used a Panasonic 14-140. This image was shot at 35mm; 1/320 sec; f/5.8; ISO 250. I'll have to review my other photos which may have been shot with the 7-14.
