The Americans are Coming! The Americans are Coming!!



I had such a crappy week.

Anything I touched just pooped into oblivion (one such was a beloved Kickstarter project that my friend and project partner Jennifer Carson marketed to all our Facebook fans, friends and family wasn't enough to reach it's goal.  You can see the aftermath here if you like..... ":("

It doesn't mean that we're giving up on our baby!  After all the Wright Brothers  never gave up after their first mishaps with gliders.  We're not giving up on bringing Fox Hollow to the masses.  There's more than one way to bring sweet little furry animals in early Victorian clothes to life (where are my jumper cables???)   <~  just kidding!  just kidding!

Anywho, the stinky week weighed heavily on me and it definitely showed.  So much so that Larry decided to take the Saturday off, suggested that I do the same and head on over the Reenactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek.

The event took away my down trodden spirit!  :)

 For over 30 years history buffs have been gathering together at Battlefield Park here in Stoney Creek to reenact the battle.  This year is the 200th, anniversary of the the Battle of Stoney Creek so the event took on a greater importance to those who take interest in the History of Canada as well as the United States.

I wanted to take along my sketchbook but the greenish grey skies told me otherwise and therefore I let my smart phone camera put up with the odd rain shower.  Perhaps I will use the photographs and video captures as reference for some future piece of illustration or sculpt.

Enjoy:
~American Pipe & Drum Corp.
~TROOPS.....FALL IN......

 ~TROOPS.... MARCH.......  HUP TWO THREE FOUR....

 ~ HUP TWO THREE FOUR....HUP TWO THREE FOUR!!!
~(for the classic lit geeks and the sci fi geeks...) We won this battle due to Dr. Who and H.G. Wells giving Billy Green an SUV so he could just drive over the British encampment to tell the officers that the Americans were in Stoney Creek.  (The dude in blue was Green's driver.  Wells and Who didn't hang around for the battle.)

~big smiles on the Militia! 

~Mohawk War Chief  (please, don't hesitate to correct me)
 (There is an excellent website from the First Nation's point of view about the early wars of Canadian History.  You can find it here.)
~the Glengarry Light Infantry  (I looked this one up!)

~I like this shot!  
I think (please correct if I'm wrong) that these soldiers are from the American side of the war.  (Also, if I am correct, don't hesitate on stating any thing else about the uniforms or the troops!)

~the people involved spared no expense to enlighten viewers on Regency dress

 I'm now considering if I have the time to participate in future Reenactments.  Just so I can feel like I'm in a Jane Austin novel!

~although this Drum Corp is from the Victorian era rather than the Regency, it still was amazing to watch!

~British Soldier in front and a gaggle of Canadian Soldiers in the background (behind the civilians)

~the Stoney Creek Monument has been flying the Union Jack for 100 years now

Okay.  With the weekend over and a fresh work week in progress, I'm keeping my eyes now on getting Fox Hollow and Paisley back on line and moving forward.  

Tally Ho!

Excellent post. Very entertaining and fun to read with really good photographs. I almost feel like I was there. Well done Pat Ann. :)

Yes, excellent. If only Canada would accept me, I'd consider being an ex-yank. Keep it up Pat Ann, I'm behind ya too.
