I am suprised.

I just watched myself on the TV show Inside Brant talking about the War of 1812 and the book my wife and David Clare put together; Queenston Heights Faces of War. I'm always suprised when I watch myself talking about a subject I enjoy and I realize, I do know what I'm talking about.

Queenston Heights Faces of War

This is a photo study of the bicentenial of the Battle of Queenston Heights that was recreated on 13th of October 2012. What I found interesting about this recreating and what for me was a wow moment. At the end of the reenactment between 4:30 and 5:00 pm it started to rain. On 13th of October 1812 as the battle came to an end between 4:30 and 5:00 pm it started to rain.
