Brothers In Arms, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia


These reenactors intently watch General Washington making his rounds on the parade grounds in Colonial Williamsburg. The regimental flag is reflected in each man's glasses.

Ruth wanted to title this post "Adorable" while Darryl wanted the title "Brothers In Arms." As a compromise, we note how adorable these guys are here in the text.

I wonder if they have people who reenact the British or Hessians and, if so, how they would be chosen. Maybe the new people have to be the Redcoats and after a few years they get to graduate to being colonists. And what about Tories. Maybe if you miss too many of the planning meetings you get assigned to be a Tory.

At first I chuckled, seeing guys my age dressed as colonial soldiers. But then I was struck by the symbolism of it; the widespread commitment of a people to a cause. When old guys take up arms, there surely is unity among the people. May it also be so in the movement that began as "Occupy Wall Street."

A great reflection and photo! I was wondering if there any younger men involved? I hope there is a younger generation intestested also. Hope you are having a good weekend.

Neat reflection. I think it's great that they re-enact this history, it take a lot of dedication!
