Siege Of Fort Mifflin Revolutionary War Reenactment Held On November 15, 2009

Fort Mifflin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania held a historical "Siege Of Fort Mifflin" Reenactment on the 15th of November. Reenactors dressed like Colonial Revolutionaries, British Redcoats, Scottish Highlanders aka Green-Coated Loyalists (in the green kilts) and Loyalists (played by the 1st New Jersey Volunteers). It was a fantastic event and representation that even featured an 18th century concert at the end!
