233rd Anniversary Of The Siege Of Fort Mifflin Reenactment Held In Philadelphia, PA On November 14, 2010

A fantastic Reenactment of the Siege Of Fort Mifflin (sometimes referred to as The Battle Of Mud Island) took place on November 13 and 14, 2010. This blog entry specifically covers the Reenactment held on the 14th. As a number of you have seen from my previous entries, Fort Mifflin is located very close to the Philadelphia International Airport and airplanes fly overhead quite often. Just before the Reenactment began, a British Airways jet flew overhead and a few of the guys portraying the British Forces cheered. It was pretty funny. It was flying in the same direction as the British offensive too.

Here is a sign that makes reference to this very battle:

I recorded and uploaded six videos from the event. They can be found on my youtube page (http://www.youtube.com/MichaelTheResearcher) using the search term "Siege".
