Simcoe Day at Old Fort York

1
I had the pleasure of spending Simcoe Day with my other half at Old Fort York. We visited last year, but didn't have the chance to watch many of the firepower demonstrations that were put on. This year more than made up for that.

Re-enactors, many of them summer students, gave an ear-splitting demonstration of early 19th century firepower.

Here they prime their pans... 6
slowly load their muskets... 7
aim...
8
and FIRE! 11
Then came a bayonet charge...
15
and a mock attack through the fog of war...

All in all a great end to a great long weekend 12 17 14 13
