Outwater's Militia

Photo page 16,    2009

We had our annual meeting in Feb, starting with a tour of Rockingham in Rocky Hill, which was Washington's HQ for 6 months in 1783 at the end of the war.

Followed by our dinner meeting

On March 22nd we had a Drill Day to get the rust off after a long winter.

Alex plans his next event, and Glenn...ponders which foot is hayfoot and which is strawfoot.

April 18-19 we co-hosted the Battle of Bound Brook

The Brits drove us from Bound Brook, and took over the main intersection of town...I think we are being insulted!

On April 26th we went to the Grand Opening to the newly restored historic Doremus House in Montville, NJ.
