British Reenactors in American Regiments

Post by 10thGrenadier »

Hello,

I am an historian and historical reenactor with His Majesty’s 10th Regiment of Foot, based in Lexington, Massachusetts.

Currently I am researching American reenactors who portray British forces. I have an essay in Cambridge Scholars’_We Are What We Remember: The American Past Through Commemoration_. In conjunction with this work I am researching British reenactors who portray American forces.

I’ll be in England in the middle of July, and write to ask if any British subscribers who portray American forces might be willing to chat about their reenactment. I am interested in historical impressions and British personnel's motivations for reenacting American troops. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you for your time,

The answer to that is very few my friend. There are two small groups, one the lexington Militia and another I believe is a Maryland Regiment - I know they have Red Facings. They number around half a dozen each and are involved in other periods I am told. I do not have contact details for them I am afraid so I cannot help you any further.
