Sept 11-13 is also Fort Ti's reenactment weekend (although my wife has forbidden me to go; It's a week before my son is due).

From what everyone in my regiment has told me, it's one of the better ones. Although I've also heard that about Old Sturbridge Village (which I am looking forward to).

I’m not going to fault your wife’s priorities!

One of the other women in our regiment told us we should just have him there, in Colonial fashion. I noted that the infant and mother mortality rates were not all that great during the Revolution.
