Two Colonial Programs in Two Weekends

So, in just a little while I'll be off to Historic Halifax to participate in their Colonial Christmas program tomorrow. Our Continental Line group, the 5th NC Regiment, will be doing a small troop muster in and around the Tap Room. We will have food and merriment, plus some musket drill and firing, and demonstration of the swivel gun. It all takes place tomorrow from 10-4 if you are in northeastern NC. Plus, it's FREE!

Next Saturday, the 20th, I'll be participating in a militia muster at Tryon Palace in conjunction with their annual holiday programming and candlelight tours. This program isn't free, but it's well worth the admission charge and the candlelight tours can be a lot of fun.

I enjoy doing these laid back types of programs. And going into the holiday season it's a nice way to wind down and begin reflecting on the year that is soon to be past.
