Borodino Reenactors

If I lived in Russia I would be ALL OVER THIS.  I already reenact, portraying an American War of Independence era Brunswicker ("Hessian"), but I would love to do this some day...

Still on vacation, I made my annual pilgrimage to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC with my son Matthew today. The only picture I have with myself in it is me standing in front of Messonnier's painting, Friedland: 1807, an image that depicts Napoleon at the height of his success. Matthew took the photo.
