Throwback to the Past

The Fortress of Louisbourg is a rebuilt 17th century French Fortress that often hosts events, such as The Grand Encampment pictured here, that take visitors back to a time when war was a real threat and citizens and military personnel alike were always on guard and ready for any attack from the English.  Being at this event was like being back in the 1700's as the crew does an excellent job of making it as authentic as it can be....and as you can see, it's pretty darn close to the real thing!  Even the smell of gunpowder permeated the air along with the sounds of musket firings and cannons and everyone dressed the part to a tee.
