This is Battle Day Weekend here in town. The Revolutionary War Battle was fought near here on August 16th 1777. This little conservative New England town does a pretty good job of celebrating and remembering the event. Lots of things going on. The big thing tomorrow is a 2 hour parade.
One cool thing that happen today is that the folks from New Hampshire brought over "Old Molly" and fired her off up at the Bennington Monument. Old Molly is a brass cannon that was captured from the British during the battle.
Can you imagine any machine that we work on that would still be in working order 225 years from now?
Wow I'm in the beers already and I still have to make the chowder.
