For the final episode in my series on the 2013 Fort Frederick 18th century Market Fair, I'd like to show you a ceremony I attended with Jaeger's Battalion on Roger's Rangers. Jaeger's Battalion is the oldest, continuously operating re-enactment unit in the United States. They were founded 61 years ago by John Jaeger, and are commanded today by Maj Tim Toddish. Fort Frederick hosts one on the largest gatherings of Jaeger's Battalion in the country. In 2013, 63 rangers were present at Fort Frederick, representing five companies; the Virginia company, the Pennsylvania Company, the Maryland Company, the Mississippi Company and the Kansas Company.

put this video up last night, but I had to delete it to fix a problem and reload it today.

As an ex-Brit, now adopted by the New World, i am pleased to see that the spirit of Roger's Rangers is still very much alive and well! He truly was a remarkable man who foresaw the need for "special forces" years ahead of his time. Thanks for this insight into a remembrance ceremony and celebration that i never knew existed.
