Cannon Firing

First Light 2016, Ste. Marie Among the Hurons

Our group and re-enactment friends have been invited to participate in the First Light event at Ste. Marie among the Hurons again this year.

We will be providing musket and cannon firing demonstrations of the mid 1700’s era when France still ruled over the colonies in Canada.

The event was held for three days each week, starting Thursday November 24, Friday and Saturday for the next three weeks, concluding on Saturday December 10.

Our cannon was located in the Northwest bastion.

Enjoy the attached pictures.
