Dear Fellow Mohicanites,
Weekends are always filled with errands, cleaning, and a list of things to be done. Well, for those willing to toss everything aside and go on a historic adventure, I suggest you subscribe to Smoke & Fire News. To quote:
"The one newspaper that covers all living history periods on a regular schedule supplying Living History Participants with event dates, articles, recipes, updates, information resources, cartoons and much much more. Everything you need to know about the world of Living History."
I was able to attend a living history event in northern Illinois two weekends ago and purchased the October issue. The paper does represent all time periods, as the index listed events for medieval, scottish, FRENCH & INDIAN WAR, Civil War, and Native American, just to name a few. The paper also covers events all over the United States, not any particular region. I would be my flint and firesteel that Champ has or does subscribe to this newspaper.
Sample copies are $2.00 and subscriptions are $18.00 (12 issues). For those interested in contacting them, the address and phone number are:
Smoke & Fire News
PO Box 166
Grand Rapids, OH 43522
You may be wondering what my motive is behind promoting the newspaper. I assure you, it's purely the love of LOTM, history, and attending reenactor events. I'm not receiving any type of kickback of any kind.
My suggestion is to send for a sample copy. I promise you won't be disappointed.
