Fort Meigs First Siege videos

I participated in the First Siege 1813 event last weekend at Fort Meigs ( and a few days later someone posted videos of our Saturday battle on youtube. It's always gratifying to see a reenactment from the public's viewpoint afterwards. I was in the right wing of the American line, furthest from the camera. The guy standing next to me had a GoPro  strapped to his shako by the CBC. I hope their next documentary has some footage of my musket making it through a firefight without a single misfire!

Since this particular battle was Dudley's Massacre, we lost. You can see the aftermath here:
