Been hearing the most horrible rumors about Colonial Williamsburg NOT holding the fantastic “Under the Redcoat” event in 2013. Colonial Williamsburg, please tell me that this isn’t true! Of every reenactment I have ever attended, that was by far the best.
Sadly, it’s true. They have cancelled both UTR and Prelude to Victory. We’re all pissed, and we’re holding an informal Hellfire Club event on the same weekend in protest.
