Revolutionary War Encampment

Each year the Northwest Treaty Alliance, a non-profit organization that studies and re-creates the culture, lifestyle and arts at the time of the American Revolution (www.nwta.com), stages a Revolutionaly War Re-enactment in Louisville, KY.

In addition to a pitched battle between the Colonials and the Red Coats (the dastardly British and their mercenary Hessians), the two-day event includes a recreation of what a market street would have looked like 250 years ago, complete with shops, milliners, food and games for children.

This gallery attempts to capture the spirit and flavor of this re-enactment.
