The Return to the Hook, Gloucester, VA
The 17th rode at the Battle of the Hook this past weekend in Gloucester, VA. The event was a great success, fun was had by all, and riding with the Colonial Williamsburg contingent of the Queen's Rangers on Saturday made our numbers double. This weekend included over 1,000 reenactors on both sides (Continental and British). There were boat landings, cavalry demonstrations and battlefield engagements, a night skirmish, the raiding and burning of a farm house as well as overall fun!
