Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If I could have done things different, I would have attended the Adjutant event vice the "other" event, but I was their to support a friend with his sutlerly. After this many years the "battles" have lost their luster and now I know why I had stopped attending reenactments. The only bright spots to the event were: seeing old friends, meeting and sitting down and talking to Ken at Doug's tent, camping on the Fallen Timbers battlefield on Thursday night, riding my trusty mount for the last time (he is retiring).
After attending this event, I will probably start looking really hard at what events I will be attending.
