"Sharp, quirky, and occasionally nettlesome", Walking the Berkshires is my personal blog, an eclectic weaving of human narrative, natural history, and other personal passions with the Berkshire and Litchfield Hills as both its backdrop and point of departure. I am interested in how land and people, past and present manifest in the broader landscape and social fabric of our communities. The opinions I express here are mine alone. Never had ads, never will.
Battle of Monmouth (2010) Reenactment Photos (part 2)
Proctor's Artillery and American Light Dragoons engage the Royalists, who are pressing the center and right flanks of the American position at Monmouth. New York infantry (including a Native American ally) and a company of riflemen reinforce the right flank and the Jersey Brigade holds the center. Major General Lee observes the action, but has not yet been dressed down by Washington for withdrawing from the attack. The Jerseymen, including Ogden's 1st New Jersey, prepare to advance on a strong British position. (To be continued).
