today I went to a Reenactment event in Hesse. There are a lot of shows concerning the middle ages around here but I have never been to an event dealing with the times of the 18th century.
Here are some or better a lot of impressions I got today. If I had more time I would have joined one of those groups - my favorites had been the Hesse-Cassel Regiment of Dithfurt.
There is also a video made by the German TV http://www.ardmediathek.de/radio/hessenschau/Historisches-Milit%C3%A4rspektakel-in-Eichenz/hr-fernsehen/Video?bcastId=3301950&documentId=37126664

|This 12pdr was also shot on this event and caused a lot of smoke and loudness.|
|Even indians have to go for morning toilet.|
|The 1st Pennsylvania|
|Some scottish fighters|
|A part of the real big camp.|
|A very realistic Redcoat.|
|The Prussian camp|
|His comment: "What´s his name, where does he come from and show me your teeth".|
|Hesse-Cassel Regiment of Dithfurt|
|The Indian warband|
|A fantastic looking costume|
|Again Hesse-Cassel Regiment of Dithfurt.|
|One event - Lords dueling with pistols.|
|Their majesties of Hesse|
|Also very impressive - a short introduction about fencing with foils|
I´ll be there again for sure.
