NEW ENGLAND COLONIAL LIVING HISTORY GROUP.

About Us.

We are an 18th century Living History group. Our main area of interest is in the New World and our period is 1680-1760. But we also research this period in Europe and the British Isles.

A Winter's Tale.

18th century Historical Trekking-A Winter’s Tale. By Keith H. Burgess © I left alone early in the morning with the frost still on the ground. Before leaving I loaded my fusil just in case I should need it. I started north following the wilderness trail until I reached Pilot’s Rock at the head of Hazard Valley, so named for a close friend who died some years ago. His Living History persona was that of Arthur Hazard, but his real name was Arthur William Baker. From Pilot’s Rock I moved steeply… Continue
