Tenth Regiment’s Farewell to Vincent J.-R. Kehoe

Vincent J.-R. Kehoe, one of the leaders in Revolutionary War reenacting in New England, passed away yesterday, a month shy of his 87th birthday. Kehoe founded the recreated Tenth Regiment of Foot and led it through the first four years of the Bicentennial commemoration. As part of his drive toward historical accuracy in reenacting, he compiled all known British and American eyewitness accounts of the Battle of Lexington and Concord in volumes titled We Were There!—April 19 1775. A full obituary (with music) appears on the Tenth Regiment’s website.
