Compagnie LeBoeuf

Friends / Thursday, July 6th, 2017

This is my reenacting family. If anyone would have told me I would one day have a reenacting family I would have laughed. Funny how the world works I LOVE this group photo of Compagnie LeBoeuf! (Many of us, but not all of us…) taken at Old Fort Niagara French & Indian Encampment.

Compagnie Leboeuf is a group dedicated to preserving the French Heritage of what is known as the French & Indian War or the Seven Years War. We portray the Compagnie Franche de la Marine assigned to the Fort de la Riviére au Boeuf, or more simply Fort LeBoeuf. The Compagnies Franches de la Marine (Independant Companies of the Navy) were the only regular French force in New France from 1680 until the arrival of Army Regulars in 1755. As such they played an instrumental role in the history of North America. We honor this role by presenting living history programs on the compagnies franches and other aspects of mid-18th century life.

Whatcha talkin' bout Willis?
