Vermont Step Back into History to the Revolutionary War -Fort at No4 Event, come join us at Fort at No.4 in Charlestown, New Hampshire this Saturday and Sunday the 18th and 19 of September 2010. King George the 3rd is mighty upset with us, seeing that we won't put up with Great Britain's Taxes with out Representation any more, so we got a little group together and had our selves a little ole Tea Party in Boston. So now King George the 3rd has sent his Red Coats here make us behave. Well our Army and Militia are making ready to meet them. Not to worry folks, we'll send those Red Coats back to King George with their tales between their legs.
