The idea for this site came about as a result of
my activities as a 17th
century reenactor (here I have just fired a matchlock musket).
Over the years I have accumulated a large number of research materials,
very many copied from microfilms and facsimilies of period documents. These
materials have been a great help to me in my studies and I hope by putting
them up online, they will be for others as well.
I reenact with Sir
Thomas Blackwell's Regiment of Foote, Sergeant-Major's Company,
a royalist English Civil War unit based in the northeastern United States.
I portray Luke Knowlton,
a veteran of the wars in the Low Countries, who is now the quartermaster-sergeant
and clerk for the company.
