I attended the Vincennes Rendezvous in May and loved it, although it was very hot that day. Here’s what Wikipedia says about the Spirit of Vincennes: The Spirit of Vincennes Rendezvous is an annual reenactment held on Memorial Day weekend at the French Commons, adjacent to the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park in Vincennes. It is also hosted by the Northwest Territory Alliance (NWTA), and the George Rogers Clark National Historical Park. The event was started in the 1970s, and is intended to introduce visitors to life along the frontier in late 18th and early 19th century Vincennes, particularly during the American Revolution. According to the it’s webpage, the rendezvous may attract 400 to 500 reenactors and 35,000 visitors.
I cannot believe that I had never gone to it before as I love that kind of stuff. These are a few of the hundreds of pictures that I took. It might take a while loading. The tune played is a fife and drum song called “Standing With Roy.”
