A hidden voice at the battlefield yells “ready! aim!” The Patriot rebels and British loyalists wearing 18th century uniforms, raise their muskets and prepare to fire.
A few feet away, others wearing T-shirts and sun-visors raised their cell phones and focused on the fighters.
“Fire!” Muskets blasted as camera shutters fired.
It was all part of the annual Battle of Huck’s Defeat re-enactment Saturday at Historic Brattonsville, the site of the first Patriot milita victory. The battle took place in 1780.
Never miss a local story.
