The Redcoats attacked again at Minute Man National Historic Park in Concord, Massachusetts. One of their officers rode this photogenic horse, snapped by American militiaman and redditor Samafoof. He describes what's involved in an American Revolutionary War battle reenactment:
In the Battle Road reenactment I was on a National Park so basically the whole thing is planned out by the Park Rangers. But in normal reenactments there are a number of different ways. You can die basically when you want to but here are some guidelines. 1. If you run out of ammo, you die 2. If your musket is malfunctioning, you die 3. (my favorite) Your Captain hands out the ammunition in the beginning and arranges it your cartridge bag. But one of the cartridges is colored, my Captain usually picks red, once you go to reload that colored cartridge, that is your last load, then, you die. 4. If you are surrounded and just totally screwed, you die
Anyone can win really, just depends on how many die on your side or the other side surrenders.
