It is a little known fact that Laughery creek was the site of one of the very few Revolutionary war battles to take place in what is now the state of Indiana . Lore of the Laughery will be held May 3 & 4 2008 ,227 years after the original historical event "....We all had the best time.....We watched a Native American raid on settlers, a Fife & Drum corp, a military unit fire artilery and visited with the camp Doctor who showed us how he removes a musket ball from a persons (ouch)... I bought 4 horn cups for my camp kitchen from a blanket trader.The boys bought lenses to put in their fire kits ...and we got baby girl a wooden knife/w sheath(to hit bubby in the head with).....I glad the rain held off Sat , it was a great day ......We're going to check out "Spring National Shoot"and blackpowder gun show Jun 14-22 2008....I heard they have a commercial row (more shopping) :laugh:
