Hot! An update and a few Spanish Civil War shots…

The last few weeks have been unbelievably hectic for me, between dealing with a huge storm and the resulting multi-day power outage, my family visiting for a few days, and both the 4th of July and Bastille Day holidays with Marc’s parents.  Marc and I were supposed to be attending the Vietnam War tactical down in Louisa, Virginia this past weekend, but with everything that has been going on, we decided that we needed a weekend off.

This coming week I’m headed up alone to the Defiance & Independence encampment up at Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York.  It looks like it’s going to be an awesome event, complete with dragging the cannons through town, etc.  I won’t be participating, but I will be there as an official photographer, so keep an eye out for me if you’re attending!

Two weeks ago, Marc and I had our first major event with the Spanish Civil War unit that we helped found, Frente Rojo.  Unfortunately, the event was the same weekend as the awful derecho storm that devastated the east coast, so the event was cancelled after the first day, but we still had a really good time, and we were actually the largest unit at the event, despite our very unusual impression!  Frente Rojo will be attending the Fort Mott timeline in late September, and will hopefully also be at Military Through the Ages next year, so you can expect to see a lot more of our little anarcho-communist group in the future!  For now, here are a couple shots from the event:

  1. Ah so you’re headed to Fort Ti! Give a wave to the NE when you hit Albany. I’m midway between there and Bennington, VT (about 15 miles away) in a small village called Valley Falls.

    Enjoy!

  3. I dig the red flannel shirt. I contemplated using a shirt like that for my French Resistance impression, but I went with a more subdued one. Looks good, keep it up!
